Several federal agencies worked together to develop TBI common data elements for use in research. The primary goal of using common measures is to improve the comparison of research findings across studies. These measures are often useful for clinical care.
The TBI common data elements website provides over 900 recommended measures that span all age groups, injury severity levels, and continuum of care settings.
