Objective: The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of select pre-injury, peri-injury, and post-injury factors towards the prediction of neurobehavioral outcome at 2-years following mild-moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI). Method: Participants were 28 U.S. military service members (Mean Age = 28.6 [SD = 8.0]; 89.3% male) who had sustained a mild-moderate TBI. Participants completed the TBI Quality of Life (TBI-QOL) scale, Neurobehavioral Symptom Inventory, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Checklist, and Combat Experiences Scale within 6-months of injury (i.e., Subacute recovery phase; M = 3.7 months, SD = 2.2) and again at 2-years post-injury (M = 23.8 months, SD = 0.5). Using regression analyses, self-reported symptoms in the subacute recovery phase (i.e., PTSD, depression, resilience), as well as other factors (i.e., combat exposure, TBI severity, age, gender) were used to predict 13 outcome variables at 2-years post-injury (e.g., anger, headaches, fatigue, postconcussion symptoms). Results: PTSD symptom reporting in the...
