Abstract

The format and procedures of comprehensive-integrated (C-I) postacute outpatient brain injury rehabilitation are reviewed. Similarities between a C-I program and traditional medical rehabilitation and the specific roles of both restorative and compensatory cognitive rehabilitation in a C-I program are discussed. The process of C-I programming is described from the perspectives of staff and participants, and the specific contributions of restorative cognitive rehabilitation to this process are identified. Outcomes for the Mayo C-I program are presented, including goal attainment, behavioral changes, and work and living independence. At one-year follow-up, 85% of program graduates were in unsupervised living; 50% were in competitive employment; and an additional 23% were in transitional, supported, or sheltered work.
