Papers for TBIBank
The following articles present measures recommended for TBI research by the pediatric and adult Interagency Workgroups on Common Data Elements (CDE) in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Research. The project is described at this link: http://www.commondataelements.ninds.nih.gov/TBI.aspx
The aim of the CDE workgroups was to identify a core set of measures and procedures for use in TBI research, to facilitate comparison and aggregation of data across studies and investigators. The CDE papers include recommendations for demographic and clinical variables, biomarkers, imaging data, and outcomes measures.
CDE Papers with Recommended Outcome Data Elements:
- Wilde, E. A., Whiteneck, G. G., Bogner, J., Bushnik, T., Cifu, D. X., Dikmen, S., et al. (2010).
Recommendations for the use of common outcome measures in traumatic brain injury research. Arch Phys Med Rehabil, 91(11), 1650-1660 e1617.
