TBI Unity of Effort
The National Capital Area TBI Unity of Effort is an initiative established in response to the implementation of the TBI Pathways of Care, managed operationally by the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC), and the re-alignment of the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) within the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) with research support provided by the USUHS. The Unity of Effort leverages resources on America's Health Campus to improve patient-friendly access to the highest quality of TBI care for WRNMMC beneficiaries by employing cutting-edge diagnostic techniques, applying state-of-the-science interventions and leading education and research efforts with international recognition. These activities are done in concert with the Quadruple aim of the Military Health System (MHS) through responsible stewardship and accountability.
To implement the research needs within the Unity of Effort, a Research Synergy Board was established with the objective of creating partnerships and leveraging capabilities within WRNMMC and USUHS to facilitate successful TBI research on America's Health Campus. CNRM is a leading partner in optimizing research efforts through the Research Synergy Board to enhance scientific discovery and improve clinical effectiveness.
