Social determinants of health (SDoH) are social and economic conditions that affect a wide range of health-related outcomes (e.g., functioning, quality of life, and the risk for adverse events). There is growing recognition that SDoH significantly impacts rehabilitation outcomes among persons living with traumatic brain injury (TBI). This webinar will summarize findings from several recent studies which illustrate the ways in which SDoH can influence rehabilitative care delivery and a return to functioning among those with TBI.

 Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss the ways in which social determinants of health influence access to quality rehabilitative care for TBI.
  2. Explain the ways in which social determinants of health shape overall recovery from TBI.
