In this study, researchers compared the expectations of patients with traumatic brain injury when they first entered a post-acute program to the recommendations that were made at the end of the program. In more than half of the 240 people who participated in the study, there was a significant discrepancy between the expectations study participants had about their future work and social life and the recommendations they were given when discharged from their post-acute programs. The authors attribute this discrepancy, in part, to cognitive disorders from the brain injury.
