Abstract:


Purpose:

To characterise and determine the pre-injury, injury and post-injury factors associated with vocational outcome 1-9 years post-discharge from a mixed therapy/educational/vocational rehabilitation (VR) residential programme.

Methods:

119 clients of working age when they acquired their brain injury and who had attended the centre between 2002 and 2011 were followed up at least 1 year post-discharge to determine their vocational outcome as part of an ongoing review/audit of the service. All clients had had a severe/very severe brain injury. Clients were classified as having a positive vocational outcome (working - paid/voluntary, full/part-time or undertaking full or part-time vocationally related education) or negative vocational outcome (undertaking neither work nor education).

Results:

Over half of the clients attained a positive vocational outcome. Length of time since discharge did not differ between those clients with a positive or negative vocational outcome. Vocational outcome was predicted by cognitive and motor ability at discharge, and gender. Together these variables correctly classified the vocational outcome of 76 % of the clients.

Conclusion:

Clients with severe/very severe brain injury can attain a positive vocational outcome following intensive neurorehabilitation consisting of traditional therapies in addition to educational and VR.
