Abstract

Ten severely brain-injured patients completed questionnaires designed to measure perceived disability, level of depression, and effects of treatment over the course of a six month, full-time outpatient rehabilitation programme. Treatment staff also rated patients' progress and participation in the programme on a once-a-month basis. High correlations among the patient measures were found, although little relationship appeared between patient and staff ratings. Implications for patient-staff interactions and overall psychosocial outcome after brain injury are discussed.
