Evidence-based Review of Acquired Brain Injury (ERABI) is an ongoing evidence-based review of the literature for rehabilitation or rehabilitation-related interventions for acquired brain injury (ABI). The principle of ERABI is to improve the quality of ABI rehabilitation by synthesizing the current literature into a utilizable format and laying the foundation for effective knowledge transfer to improve programs and services.
Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF) has supported Evidence-Based Reviews of Acquired Brain Injury (ERABI) since 2004. This collaboration involves a team of healthcare practitioners and researchers conducting ongoing annual reviews of rehabilitation interventions/literature to improve care for people with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). Recognized internationally, this project is a cornerstone of the ONF ABI program. Current work is focused on the evaluation of published literature to determine the quality of research and its use for practice. The work of ERABI has led to the development of clinical practice guidelines as well as help identify gaps in research.
