Cutting edge emergency services now allow many Iowans to survive a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that would have caused death just a decade ago. The discharge planners at medical centers struggle with dramatically shorter acute inpatient stays, increased caseloads, and over 2000 brain injury admissions each year. Historically, following discharge from the hospital, Iowans with brain injury and their families have been left with little understanding of brain injury, its long-term effects, or where to go for services and supports.
