SEMTBIS was established in 1987 as a Traumatic Brain Injury Model System (TBIMS) in partnership with the Brain Injury Association of Michigan to research TBI outcomes. Key stakeholders in our system, including individuals with TBI and their care-partners, will participate in the implementation of our grant objectives, research studies, and dissemination of findings over the 5 years of this grant. The goal of the SEMTBIS research grant is to continue longitudinal data collection of TBI participants for the TBIMS national database, as well as engage in a site-specific project and a module project examining the predictors of financial capacity and risk of financial exploitation after TBI. The objectives of these projects are to examine biopsychosocial and cognitive characteristics associated with financial capacity and risk of financial exploitation after TBI. The expected outcomes from these projects are that rehabilitation professionals will have an empirically based test battery that will help identify the persons at risk for financial abuse and gain knowledge about the psychosocial risk factors that predict that vulnerability. As such, the products that we anticipate developing include a test battery to be used by rehabilitation professionals to assess financial vulnerability, and educational materials that can be used by treating professionals, persons with TBI, as well as friends and family to help protect against financial abuse. Collaboration with other NIDILRR grantees as well as the Brain Injury Association of Michigan will increase research activities, optimize output, and minimize redundancy. Dissemination of our findings will continue to be a high priority, achieved through our websites, publications, presentations, and collaboration with the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center.
