ABSTRACT

Report to the Surgeon General: Traumatic Brain Injury Task Force   [open pdf - 3MB]

"The Task Force (TF) reviewed the continuum of care while focusing on best practices and gaps in the care of military Service members with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBT). After analysis of the best practices and gaps, the recommendations of the TF were divided into 13 areas. Some near-term recommendations are available for immediate implementation while others will require additional staff work prior to implementation. There are also recommendations that require assignment to other agencies within DA and others that require a higher level of authority (such as, Health Affairs (HA), Office of the Secretary of Defense, and DVA) to implement. A very brief summary of the best practices and gaps precedes the recommendations below. Appendix A contains a list of references and forms cited within this report as well as a related bibliography."
