Traumatic Brain Injury and Depression
Future Research Needs (2 of 2)
Five of the six Key Questions for this Comparative Effectiveness Review could not be adequately answered with existing literature, and the question about prevalence was only partially satisfied. The Key Questions were derived with expert and stakeholder input to define core knowledge for which we should have information. The questions themselves can serve as an outline for critical areas in which knowledge is insufficient. Lack of studies to assess how best to identify and treat depression after TBI is a cause for concern. High-quality research is warranted across the spectrum of study designs and aims.
