Coalition Building: A Tool To Implement Evidenced-Based Resource Facilitation in The VHA: Pilot Results
Veterans with TBI (VTBI) often require an individually planned and coordinated approach to facilitate access to community support services.1-8 Resource facilitation (RF) is an evidenced-based model of service delivery that proactively bridges community support services following acute care or rehabilitation. The long-term goal of this program of research is to demonstrate the utility of coalition building to facilitate VA partnerships with communities and implement RF. This goal extends current Veterans Affairs (VA) care coordination activities by developing partnerships with non-VA, community-based services (Brain Injury ...

To create a Canadian consensus statement on early intervention with botulinum toxin-A (BoNTA) injections for spasticity post-stroke.

Literature review indicates that there are very few studies examining the benefits of early BoNTA intervention on spasticity and function post-stroke. Although physicians choose to inject BoNTA in the early period post-stroke to manage spasticity, it is not clear what some of the clinical parameters are that can be used to assist in de...
