Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems National Database Reaches 15,000 Participants

The Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems (TBIMS) enrolled its 15,000th participant in the TBIMS National Database on July 7, 2016. The TBIMS National Database contains data collected from participants in the TBIMS Program. The network of 16 TBIMS Centers across the United States work together to collect information for research on outcomes after traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Individuals enrolled in the TBIMS National Database are critical to advancing understanding in the field of the lifetime impact of TBI. TBIMS researchers have been able to publish more than 700 peer-reviewed articles, including 10 special issues of leading journals in the field of rehabilitation. About a quarter of these articles used data from the TBIMS National Database.

The TBIMS and TBIMS National Database are sponsored by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), Department of Health and Human Services. Learn more about the TBIMS National Database and TBIMS program athttp://www.msktc.org/15000.
