Introduction: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects approximately 1.4 million Americans annually. Mild TBI accounts for approximately 75% of all TBI. This population is largely responsible for their own symptom management as most of those who seek healthcare are treated and released from Emergency Departments. This may be problematic as it is unknown what persons with mild TBI do to self manage their symptoms, or how effective those strategies are. In addition, it is unknown whether certain symptoms, such as those that are most bothersome, are the symptoms that persons are more likely to self manage. Purpose: The purpose of this research is to describe the symptom experience for persons with mild TBI in terms of presence of symptoms, bothersome nature of symptoms, and identify what persons do to manage those symptoms. In addition, this study will describe the extent to which persons experience symptom relief following their symptom management strategy. Theoretical Framework: This study is guided by the UCSF Symptom Management Model. Sample: Persons treated and released from the emergency department of 2 community hospitals with the diagnosis of mild TBI will be asked to participate in this study. Proposed sample size is N=50. Methods: This study will be a longitudinal, repeated measures design. Persons will be evaluated within one month and 3 months of time since injury. Symptoms will be rated by self-report according to Kay's The Problem Checklist and self management strategies assessed according to the Revised Symptom Self-Management Measure for TBI. Demographic data will also be collected according to pre-injury and injury-related factors. Statistical analysis will include descriptive statistics and regression analysis. Conclusion: This study will aim to identify bothersome symptoms, symptom self-management strategies used, and symptom relief of persons with MTBI.
