Gordon WA. Community integration of people with traumatic brain injury: introduction. 2004;85(4 Suppl 2):S1-2. This introduction discusses the philosophy of the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Community Integration of Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. This approach places the perspective, values, and preferences of the person with a disability at the center of our work. Seven of the 9 articles in the supplement are based on the research of the RRTC. The articles address the following: methods of implementing a research program within a Participatory Action Research framework, insider-outsider power relationships within measurement, a review of quality of life research on individuals with TBI, 2 articles summarizing research on depression, an evaluation of a method for identifying TBI in schoolchildren, a study of aging in people with TBI, an evaluation of an innovative community-based vocational rehabilitation program, and a description of findings from the Colorado Traumatic Brain Injury Registry and Follow-Up System.
