This webcast will cover the findings from a study using Facebook to provide information on employment evidence-based practices to individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Two groups of individuals with TBI participated in the study. One group was randomly assigned to the Facebook intervention and the other group assigned to a "business as usual" group. This group received a monthly e-mail with resources similar to those posted in the Facebook group. The presenters will cover the results of the study and discuss needs for future research on using social media as a knowledge translation strategy.
