Abstract: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the main cause of death and disability in adolescents and young adults (Thurman et al, 1999). Societal participation following TBI incorporates a broad spectrum of activities which may vary between sexes, cultures and age groups. Measures of societal participation have been specifically developed for the TBI population which includes activities such as social outings, leisure and sporting pursuits, and employment roles. These include the Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory (MPAI) (Malec et al, 2003), Community Integration Questionnaire (CIQ) (Willer et al, 1993) and the Brain Injury Community Rehabilitation Outcome-39 (BICRO-39) (Powell et al, 1998). All these measures quantify the extent to which people with TBI can participate in personal, domestic and community activities.
