Abstract:
Study evaluating initial placement and 1-year employment outcomes of a Medical/Vocational Case Coordination System (MVCCS) for persons with brain injury (BI) providing (1) early case identification and coordination, (2) appropriate medical and vocational rehabilitation (VR) interventions, (3) work trials, and (4) supported employment interventions such as job coaching. Participants were 114 individuals age 18-65 with acquired BI. Results indicate that time since injury and impairment/disability best predicted vocational placement, while level of initial placement best predicted employment status at 1-year follow-up.
