The lived experience of return to work rehabilitation following traumatic brain injury

  • Marian J. Hooson

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is becoming more prevalent in an age of increased motorization and violence. The majority of patients are young adults previously in paid employment. Life expectancy is usually unaffected once past the acute stage of recovery. The reported statistics for successful return to work (RTW) vary from 15% to 77%. However no literature was sourced which examines or discusses the most central component of successful return to work rehabilitation for these individuals – what the individuals themselves have found to be of assistance from their experience of return to work rehabilitation in attempting to return to work.
