GAO report on testing for mild TBI

The Government Accountability Office looks at a computer-based tool used by the Veterans' Administration to screen returning veterans for mild traumatic brain injury, beginning in April 2007. It finds the VA's providers have difficulty fully folllowing the established protocol and that the the VA has not yet begun to determine the tool's validity and reliability - thought it does plan to. The report describes some of the clinical and cultural challenges in its efforts to screen and evaluate mild TBI.
