Unfortunately, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
is not out of the ordinary.
But recovery, research and help
should be extraordinary.
What are “Model Systems” of care?
University of Washington Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center
The University of Washington Traumatic Brain Injury Model System is one of 16 government funded model system centers in the United States. The UW TBI Model System is a longitudinal study of people who have experienced TBI that seeks to answer questions about recovery from brain injury and what happens to patients after a TBI. This study only recruits patients currently receiving care on the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at Harborview or the University of Washington Medical Center.
Why get involved with TBI research?
Data changes policy.
And policy changes lives.
