Midwest Regional Traumatic Brain Injury Model System

Our model system is designed to establish a coordinated system of care for people with TBI, including prehospital care, emergency care, acute care, long-term acute care, intensive rehabilitation, and community care. All of this is provided by a team of health professionals working to maximize the social integration, health, function, employment and independent living of individuals with disabilities related to TBI.

Our research program’s mission is to improve the lives of individuals who experience traumatic brain injury and to aid their families and the community by creating and teaching about new discoveries about the natural course of recovery, rehabilitation treatment and outcomes following TBI.
