In 2010, the Vice Provost for Health of Grand Valley State University was awarded a grant from the Department of Defense to conduct a community based, post-acute rehabilitation research project addressing the unique, comprehensive physical and psychosocial needs of wounded warriors who have sustained a traumatic brain injury with or without post traumatic stress disorder. Military relevant courses were created to educate civilian health care professionals that provided comprehensive, evidence-based, interprofessional, rehabilitation services that met the needs of wounded warriors and their families.
Sponsors of the Midwest Traumatic Injury Rehabilitation Center Study
The research project was conducted by Grand Valley State University and Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital and was made possible by a grant awarded and administered by the U.S. Army Medical Research & Materiel Command (USAMRMC) and the Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), at Fort Detrick, MD, under Contract Number: W81XWH-10-1-0607 and W81XWH-11-2-0146
The developers of the Veterans TBI Education Project course content have no financial conflicts of interest.
