Mild traumatic brain injury referrals

Guiding principles for General Practitioners

Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. It is defined as an alteration in brain function, or other evidence of brain pathology caused by external force (see article in link “Traumatic brain injury – support for injured people and their carers”).

MTBI following closed head injury is estimated to comprise 70–90% of all hospital-treated adult traumatic brain injuries. The negative impacts of MTBI can involve adverse cognitive, physical and behavioural symptoms, which impact on an individual’s activities and participation in life roles. Allied health follow up can be provided for MTBI patients who have ongoing symptoms impacting their daily life and meet CSRT Referral requirements (PDF, 180KB).

Note: for children under the age of 16 years old please refer to the paediatric web page for further information on where to refer for follow-up services.
