Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The development of multidisciplinary teams for the assessment and treatment of traumatic brain injury has not seen a parallel development in methods of coordinating and collating the information gathered by different professions. The team at the Head Injury Rehabilitation Centre (HIRC), Sheffield uses a process of assessment that encourages the coordination of such information, particularly across the areas that do not fall neatly into the remit of specific disciplines. The framework of the assessment is presented, together with discussion of methods of gathering information and of sharing that information. The advantages of this approach are discussed in terms of benefits for the client, for the professionals involved in the assessment and for other services that might be involved with the client.
