A recent report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine argues that the labels ranging from “mild” to “severe” routinely used to distinguish traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are outdated and do not provide patients or caregivers with helpful information. This report suggests creating an updated classification of TBIs to better aid patient care and the performance of research concerning traumatic brain injuries.
A person would have difficulty classifying cancer as “mild” or “severe” for factors like its diagnosis or prognosis, argues the president emeritus of the Institute of Healthcare Improvement. Implementing improved approaches for classifying TBIs would create more distinct and unique patient care plans, improve monitoring of patient conditions, and better the translation of therapies from research to clinics.
How Traumatic Brain Injuries Should Be Viewed
Traumatic brain injuries should not be treated as an isolated event and should instead be approached as an evolving medical condition that carries long-term effects. Both medical providers and healthcare organizations should modify treatments, assessments, and community resources as a patient’s situation changes. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and private payers should ensure that care for TBIs remains consistent under the existing medical guidelines.
TBIs can impact anyone and vary substantially in their level of severity. It can impact all age groups, and their causes include a diverse group of situations. Each year, it is reported that approximately 2 million people suffer traumatic brain injuries in this country. The resulting costs are reported to be as high as $750 billion. Many people with traumatic brain injury also find that they do not have adequate care and face additional challenges.
What Constitutes Effective Traumatic Brain Injuries Treatment
An effective method of treating traumatic brain injuries should include several factors, including follow-ups and improved rehabilitative care as soon as possible after an accident. TBI victims should also undergo ongoing health screenings.
Additionally, the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services should create a Task Force to act as a successor to the National Research Action Plan for Traumatic Brain Injuries. Also, within two years, the task force should establish a country-wide framework and implementation plan to better traumatic brain injury care.
How Standards Should Be Utilized
Standards for traumatic brain injury care should be implemented in all care environments where people with TBI are treated. A person with a traumatic brain injury will likely be passed between multiple care providers. The Center for Medicaid Services should also offer the creation of pilot programs where integrated care is provided for people with these injuries.
