Special Nursing Grand Rounds - Rethinking Survivorship: The Impact of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) from Domestic Violence

Women living with traumatic brain injuries from domestic violence (DV) are receiving growing attention in research but little is known about the context of their lives, the nature of abuse when they are hit in the head, and how their symptoms of TBI impact their lives. This presentation will focus on updated evidence and research on the lives of women who “pass out” from being hit in the head as a result of DV. Researchers, nurses, and policy makers need to be aware of the repeating nature of TBIs in women living with DV to begin to address the barriers that keep them from obtaining the resources and treatment they need to live a happy and healthy life.
