Measuring outcomes in veterans with blast-associated mild traumatic brain injury

Takeaway

  • A modified Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory-Version 4 (MPAI-4) can adequately measure outcomes in veterans with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI); however, the participation index (M2PI) need further validation.

Why this matters

    The MPAI-4 was developed to assess outcomes in veterans diagnosed with TBI and is comprised of three indexes: abilities, adjustment and participation. While the MPAI-4 score has been shown to change following rehabilitation, the effect of rehabilitation on the M2PI has not been assessed.
