If you decide to take part in this study, you will either: - receive a new experimental care management intervention aimed at improving your physical and emotional well-being, or - receive the standard care offered at the hospital.
If you enroll in the study you will be asked a series of questions. We will ask about your post-injury concerns, physical and emotional symptoms, functioning, and health services use.
If you enroll in the study and are assigned to receive the “new care management intervention”, as a study participant you will: - Have your nurse informed of any distress you may be experiencing. - Work with study staff who will try to visit you during your current hospital/emergency department stay. They will check how things are going and address any physical or emotional concerns you may have after your injury. - Have continuous communication with the study staff up to 6 months after your injury hospitalization. - Be linked to primary care and community providers that you may or may not have seen before the injury.
If you enroll in the study and are assigned to receive the “usual care”, as a study participant you will: - Receive enhanced usual care provided during and after a traumatic injury. This includes having your nurse notified of distress you may be experiencing.
