Injury Center Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs)

CE04-062 - Studies to Determine the Prevalence of a History of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in an Institutional

Initial Fiscal Year: 2004
Program: DIR
FOA Number: CE04-062
FOA Title: Studies to Determine the Prevalence of a History of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in an Institutional

Purpose

The purpose of the program is to fund a cooperative agreement to conduct pilot studies to investigate methods for determining the prevalence of a history of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in an incarcerated population. Anecdotal reports suggest that a very large proportion of the prison population may have experienced one or more TBIs. The cognitive deficits that may result from traumatic brain injuries often are not visible, and behavioral and emotional problems associated with TBI may be attributed to other causes. Thus, prisoners with TBI as well as prison officials may not be aware of the signs and symptoms of TBIs and therefore may not seek or provide appropriate treatment or other interventions. Better methods for identifying incarcerated persons with a history of TBI and related problems could lead to improved management of TBI in this population.
