A staggering number of Canadians live with a brain injury, writes Connect Experts CEO

Cost of care assessment requires a team-based approach

(July 25, 2017, 8:35 AM EDT) -- There are approximately 160,000 traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in Canada every year. It is the leading cause of death in people under the age of 45. Many are left without the ability to work or perform activities of daily living (ADLs).


Consider John, a married 54-year-old corporate lawyer, who suffered a TBI when his car went off the road last year. In the emergency room, John’s Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) was 4/15, his pupils were fixed, and cerebral spinal fluid leaked from his right ear. CT scan revealed a skull fracture with intracranial bleeding.

After seven months of recovery and rehabilitation, John was discharged home. His deficits included difficulties with language and writing, memory and concentration. Because his career relied heavily on these skills, John was unable to continue working. He required permanent help with all ADLs and a nurse to oversee his care.
