Chapter 3 Abbreviations

Acquired brain injury presents unique challenges that make rehabilitation difficult to standardize. The development of best-practice principles has been hindered by limited access to adequate sample sizes and appropriate comparison groups in ABI patients within a clinical, rehabilitation environment (National Institute of Health, 1998). As a result, a consensus on optimal models of care for brain injured patients has been elusive.
