Abstract:
Study evaluated differences in demographics, injury severity, and vocational rehabilitation (VR) outcomes for clients with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) based on rural versus urban residency. Few differences were found between the groups in demographics, injury severity, or neuropsychological test scores. However, clients from urban areas received significantly more maintenance funds, transportation services, and on-the-job training. Although not statistically significant, results showed that 24 percent of clients from urban areas were successfully employed at VR closure, compared to only 7 percent of clients from rural areas.
