Abstract:

Large numbers of SM have experienced mild traumatic brain injury mTBI in OEFOIF, many of whom require rehabilitation services. Traditional rehabilitation assessments both lack face validity for military stakeholders and sensitivity to duty-relevant vulnerabilities after mTBI. Therefore, a research team was funded to use existing research literature and stakeholder and expert input to develop a battery of dual-tasks and multitasks based on military scenarios. Initially named the Combat Readiness Check, this battery now is called the Assessment of Military Multitasking Performance AMMP. The team also developed and will submit a funding proposal to evaluate inter-rater reliability and construct validity of the AMMP in the hope that this instrument will ultimately contribute to evidence-based return-to-duty decision-making after mTBI.
