The Family Education Committee of the ACRM BI-ISIG Disorders of Consciousness (DoC) Task Force has worked to develop a comprehensive educational resource library on topics related to the care of persons with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). This project is part of a broader effort to help facilitate implementation of evidence-based guidelines and practice recommendations for persons with severe brain injury/disorders of consciousness.
