A catastrophic injury can include a severe spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, skull fracture, or loss of limb. These result in dramatic changes to a person’s life. The injured person may become dependent on caregivers. Depression rates immediately following a catastrophic injury are very high, as are rates of suicide.
Depending on the type of injury, much of the long-term treatment is likely to focus on rehabilitation, occupational therapy, and various other therapies that help an injury person have a high quality of life.
Counselling is likely to be recommended for a patient who has suffered a catastrophic injury.
