Report assesses effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation therapy for service members with TBI

November 15, 2011

The Department of Defense asked the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academies to conduct a study to determine the effectiveness of cognitive rehabilitation therapy (CRT) for the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI). The IOM looked for conclusive evidence to support the use of CRT and how CRT could be used for members of the military and veterans. The report recommended that additional research is needed to further define, standardize and assess the outcome of CRT interventions. In addition, it was recommended that further development of CRT therapy should be pursued.
