Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

We report rehabilitation interventions delivered to facilitate recovery of consciousness for patients with a traumatic brain injury. Interventions reported may prompt OT practitioners to seek advanced training in preparatory stimulation methods. The results of this review identify gaps in the literature, specifically the content of OT treatment.
