Approximately 2 million traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) occur each year in the United States. Outcomes of TBI Include catastrophic disability that affects mobility, self-sufficiency, cognition, language and communication, sensory and perceptual function, neurobehavior, marital relationships, and vocational status.

In this article, the author describes outcomes of TBI, barriers to outcome achievement, and alternative care delivery approaches to achieve these outcomes
