Abstract

Traumatic brain injury is a leading cause of death and disability iii the United States. Limited access to specialized medical and rehabilitation services has been linked to poor outcomes. Literature provides little guidancefor assessment of service obstacles and satisfaction with community resources. The present investigation describes the development of a specialized scale to evaluate caregivers' perceptions of brain injury services in the community. Results indicate good internal consistency and criterion-related validity of the Service Obstacles Scale. Lack of money for services and lackof adequate community resources were the greatest concerns voiced by respondents, while lack of transportation was the least problematic. Comparisonsare made with regard to family needs and respondents' post-injury life quality. Implications for future research are discussed.
