Intensive Rehabilitation of Patients With Severe Traumatic Brain Injury - Development of a Didactic Model
Improvement of the Interaction Between Motivation, Involvement and Re-learning of Daily Life Competences During the Intensive Neurorehabilitation of Patients With Severe TBI. Development of a Research-based Didactic Model.

The aim of the study is to develop a research-based pedagogic model to improve the interaction between the patient`s motivation, influence and learning.The hypothesis is:

A neuro-rehabilitation effort in patients with severe traumatic brain injury based on a didactic model for improvement of motivation, involvement and re-learning of daily life competences will

  • improve the patients experience of meaningful learning and influence
  • provide staff with a tool which contributes to the experience to work in a targeted way concerning motivation, patient influence and re-learning daily life competencies

The aim of the study is to develop a research-based didactic model to improve the interaction between the patient`s motivation, influence and learning.

Annually, about 7500 people get a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in Denmark. According to Danish and international experiences 250 of these get severe injuries. About 120 younger people often males need highly specialised neuro-rehabilitation at one of the two regional centres in Denmark. Due to the limited amount of research in this field it cannot be documented but assumed, that the patient's motivation and involvement in planning and implementation of rehabilitation improve subjective and objective outcome. Motivation, involvement and learning in patients with severe traumatic brain injury constitute a major challenge. The cases are individual, but often involve disturbances in language and perception, lack of realization, reduced initiative, tiredness and depression. The focus of this project is the intensive physical and psychosocial rehabilitation viewed as a process of relearning targeted daily life competences using the ICF levels of function, activity and participation.
