CHAPTER SEVENTEEN
Social and Economic Consequences of Brain Damage in Denmark: A Case Study

Jill Mehlbye and Anders Larsen


ABSTRACT
We present the results of the consequences of the treatment of brain-injured persons at the Center for Rehabilitation of Brain Injury, Copenhagin University. The evaluation focuses primarily on the economic consequences, but the social consequences are also evaluated. The case study, which covers 3 ½ years is based on 20 brain-injured persons who underwent an intensive treatment at the Center in 1987. Our study on the development of the social situation of brain-injured persons confirms the results of similar studies. The evaluation shows that after treatment at the Center, the students' quality of life improved (e.g., more students now live in their own homes). The public costs are reduced due to the training at the Center. The distribution of the gain (reduced expenditures) differs among public authorities. In conclusion, economic indications can be said to support rehabilitative efforts performed at the Center for Rehabilitation of Brain Injury.

"Does Rehabilitation Pay?" was the title of a study carried out by Amternes og Kommunernes Forskningsinstitut (AKF) in 1991. It was based on 20 students who in 1987 underwent intensive rehabilitation and treatment at the Center for Rehabilitation of Brain Damage, Copenhagen University. The main purpose of AKF's study was to evaluate the social and economic consequences of rehabilitation and treatment of brain-injured persons at the Center mentioned previously.
