Literature Review

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious event that greatly affects an individual’s ability to carry out normal functions. In extreme situations, TBI might also affect a person’s self esteem as well as cause him/her to sink into depression. The major issues that revolve around traumatic brain injuries (TBI) include loss of physical function, loss of self-awareness and self-esteem, depression, trauma and healing and support (Carroll & Coetzer, 2011). I chose this topic because it is important to explore the issues around TBI, which causes physical dysfunction, affecting one’s ability to work as well as to take good care of themselves. This topic is important to nursing as it helps to present the various interventions that would be effective in treating TBI patients.

Practice Problem/Issue and PICOT Question

The issue of TBI is important to consider in nursing because people who experience it often tend to lose their self-awareness and self-esteem, which significantly affects their ability to relate normally and freely with others. TBI events have a serious negative impact on personal and social lives of most of its victims. Therefore, it is important that care givers should have adequate knowledge on how to treat such TBI patients. Learning about this topic enables care givers to gain valuable knowledge on how to help TBI patients to regain physical function, to overcome trauma and depression, and to regain their self-esteem and self-awareness (Carroll & Coetzer, 2011).

In the case of traumatic brain injury (TBI) victims, aged between 40 and 70 years with multiple co-morbidities, will individualized care involving transitions from hospital to home environment, compared to hospitalized treatment, help to overcome depression and loss of physical activity over a period of 6 months.
