Abstract

This study might be the first one to longitudinally evaluate the outcomes of patients from 1 week to 10 years post-injury and revealed that patients still may have difficulties in social interactions and family relationships until 6 years post-injury, even though they could live and work independently. Hence, professionals should pay attention to the underlying factors causing their difficulties within the long-term recovery process.
