Abstract

An international Task Force was convened under the guidance of BMBF Conference so as to review the "State of the art" for measuring quality of life (QoL) in children who have suffered traumatic brain injury (TBI). After expert review of instruments and evaluation of two independent literature reviews this work group established "inclusion criteria" for the review of current tools that could contribute to the measurement of QoL in children with TBI. Six instruments were determined to meet all or most of the criteria required to be used in current clinical practice and research for children with TBI.
