Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Elaine De Guise, McGill University Health Center
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01947504
First received: September 17, 2013
Last updated: March 21, 2017
Last verified: March 2017
  Purpose
The objective of the study is to implement and measure the efficiency of a standardized acute and brief non-pharmacological intervention (Cognitive interventions on Sleep - Anxiety - Attention - Memory) following mild TBI and observe their impact pre- and post-treatments. The ultimate goal is to have patients be re-integrated to their activities faster with lesser symptoms and have patients present lesser post-concussive symptoms. Specific objectives: 1) Measure the effect of an acute and brief non-pharmacological intervention on PCS symptoms, sleep, headaches, affect, cognition and functional outcome following mild TBI; 2)To redefine a model of outcome prediction following mild TBI.
