Applied Cognition & TBI Task Force

 

Participants identified measurement of applied cognition in rehabilitation settings as a high priority. They noted that it is challenging to select instruments that are feasible for use in clinical settings that are also reliable, valid, and impose a low patient burden. The group discussed how one would select measures of applied cognition for various patient populations. To learn more and get involved, please contact Co-chair, Sonya Kim.
