The perceived experience of individuals with TBI who participated in a community art program
With the help of evidence-based research, Western medicine has slowly expanded its practice to non-pharmaceutical modalities. However, minority groups continue to be overlooked and marginalized from returning into their communities after being discharged from the hospital; especially, adults with TBI. This study examines the different experiences for 24 participants who completed a multiple-choice survey after participating in a community art program. Qualtrics, SPSS and Excel were used to analyze t-test and correlations between participants with a TBI and those without a TBI; significant differences between both populations were found, supporting the need theory; and, urging the need for more community integration programs.
