The current issue of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA’s) Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development (JRRD) features 19 timely scientific articles on traumatic brain injury (TBI), based on work by VA researchers and colleagues from a variety of disciplines. The papers were commissioned for a conference VA held last year to advance research in this area.

The issue also contains joint VA and Department of Defense clinical practice guidelines for mild TBI (mTBI), which include a screening tool and evaluation protocol for adult patients in any VA/DoD clinical setting at risk of a concussion/mTBI diagnosis.

Henry Lew, MD, PhD, chief of the PM&R Service, VA Boston Healthcare System, and chair of the TBI SOTA planning committee, served as guest editor for the special issue.
