Race/ethnicity and retention in traumatic brain injury outcomes research: a traumatic brain injury model systems national database study.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the contribution of race/ethnicity to retention in traumatic brain injury (TBI) research at 1 to 2 years postinjury. The findings emphasized the importance of investigating retention rates separately for blacks and Hispanics rather than combining them or grouping either with other races or ethnicities. The results also suggested the need for implementing procedures to increase retention of Hispanics in longitudinal TBI research.
