Abstract

insure (Individualized Neuropsychological Subgroup Rehabilitation Program) is a 6-week rehabilitation program tailored to the special needs of selected subgroups of traumatically brain injured (TBI) patients (Kaipio, Sarajuuri, & Koskinen, 1997) and based on neuroscientific research findings. The basic program costs $350 (US) per day. INSURE has been developed taking into account the overall care and management system needs. At the moment, while INSURE is being run only in the Käpylä Rehabilitation Centre, demand exceeds supply.
