Abstract:

This review investigates the percentage of people with traumatic and non-traumatic acquired brain injury (ABI) who return to work. To be included in the review, studies must have focused on return to work as an outcome measure, and include subjects between 18-65 years of age who were working before ABI occurred. Forty-nine studies met the inclusion criteria. Of these, 12 focused on RTW after non-traumatic ABI, and 35 focused on traumatic ABI. The review concludes that approximately 40% of subjects with non-traumatic or traumatic ABI returned to work within two years of the injury. The review also found that a substantial proportion of subjects with ABI were unable to return to their former position, or unable to return permanently.
