CDC traumatic brain injury study to test treatments, examine outcomes

Keith Yeates, PhD, director of the Center for Biobehavioral Health in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital, has been designated lead neuropsychologist for a five-year, multisite study of traumatic brain injury (TBI) among United States children, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The grant is for approximately $2.75 million.

"We know surprisingly little about the effects of treatment on the outcomes of traumatic brain injury in children and adolescents," said Dr. Yeates. "The results of this study should help us provide parents of children with TBI with better evidence-based recommendations for their children's care."

The study will include children 8 to 18 years and is designed to examine the effect of treatment during the acute, short-term and longer-term phases of care on the functional, psychosocial and disability outcomes after traumatic brain injury.

The study consortium involves investigators at Harborview Medical Center and Seattle Children's Hospital, Texas Children's Hospital, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and Nationwide Children's. In addition to his role as the study's lead neuropsychologist, Dr. Yeates, also a faculty member at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, will also serve as Nationwide Children's principal investigator on the grant.
