Traumatic Brain Injury and Depression
Traumatic Brain Injury and Depression Evidence Report: Study Criteria
Controlled vocabulary terms were used to search five databases for publications to include in the evidence report. Reference lists of included articles were hand searched to identify additional citations. Studies were excluded if they: included fewer than 50 participants, included participants younger than 16 years of age, did not include an operational definition of depression, or were unable to be used to answer any Key Question. Penetrating head injuries were not considered in this report. The search identified 2,015 articles. Of these, 115 articles were included in the review, representing 81 distinct populations, with 112 articles pertaining to KQ1, 113 to KQ2, 9 to KQ3, 2 to KQ4, and none identified for KQ5 or KQ6.
