The Perspectives of Participants With Traumatic Brain Injury on Prospective Memory Rehabilitation Incorporating Compensatory and Metacognitive Skills Training

Traumatic brain injury (TBI), resulting from incidents like traffic accidents, falls, and violence, can cause various cognitive impairments. In TBI rehabilitation, individuals acquire strategies to minimise the cognitive impact on daily life. Understanding patient perspectives is crucial for evidence-based interventions. Memory problems, common after severe TBI, include prospective memory (PM) failures, affecting independence and productivity. This study discovered that TBI participants found prospective memory rehabilitation, with compensatory strategy and metacognitive skills training, acceptable and effective. High satisfaction levels were reported, with participants expressing a willingness to recommend the program.
