IOM Releases Report on Cognitive Rehab Therapy

Last week, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released its report, “Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy for Traumatic Brain Injury: Evaluating the Evidence”, after studying whether existing research provides a conclusive evidence base to support using cognitive rehabilitation as an intervention for members of the military and veterans. The US Department of Defense (DoD) sponsored the study.

In its press release IOM said there is some evidence about the potential value of cognitive rehabilitation therapy for treating TBI, but overall research is not sufficient to develop definitive guidelines on how to apply these therapies and to determine which type of cognitive rehab will work best for a particular patient. However, since the methodological shortcomings in the evidence do not rule out potential meaningful benefits for patients, the committee supported the ongoing use of cognitive rehab while improvements are made in the standardization, design, and conduct of studies. The committee recommends an investment in research to further define, standardize, and assess the outcomes of cognitive rehab interventions. For a copy of the report go
