Abstract: This retrospective cohort study examined behavioral risk factors, access to health secrrening and primary care services among women with a history of moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) many years following injury. We compared findings of women with TBI against a general female population. Women with a history of moderate to severe TBI (n=75) appeared to have relatively comparable use of primary care services with the general population; also, use of alcohol was greater among women with TBI compared to general population estimates. Significantly more women reported poor mental health many years post injury and should be monitored long-term.
