With pediatric TBI meeting criteria for classification as a chronic condition and care coordination showing positive outcomes among CSHCN suffering from chronic illnesses, more research is needed in the field of pediatric TBI to direct coordination of care throughout short and long-term recovery. This presentation will focus on two related projects that address this research-to-practice gap. The first project was a large scoping review aimed at summarizing the current body of research related to care coordination for CSHCN to help inform future clinical and research activities for youth with TBI. The second project involved semi-structured interviews with key stakeholders to gather their perspectives and describe their experiences related to care coordination for children with TBI. Together, these projects align to provide a pathway for future clinical and research work that aims to improve care coordination for children with TBI.
