Abstract:
Study investigated the level of agreement between patient and family ratings of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning using the 70-item Neurobehavioral Functioning Inventory-Revised (NFI-R) at 1 year after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Twenty-three items on the NFI-R showed significant differences between patient and other ratings, usually with the patient reporting less frequent problems. The greatest differences were found on the depression, aggression, and memory and attention subscales.
