Abstract

Objectives:

To compare in-person with videoconferencing administration of a communication questionnaire for people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their close others.

Design:

Repeated-measures design with randomized order of administration.

Participants:

Twenty adults with severe TBI and their close others.

Methods:

Both participants with TBI and their close others completed the La Trobe Communication Questionnaire (LCQ) via interview with a clinician, once via Skype and once during a home visit.

Measures:

Total LCQ score and time taken for completion.

Results:

There were no significant differences between videoconferencing and in-person conditions in the total scores or time taken to complete the questionnaire.

Conclusions:

Videoconferencing-based administration of the LCQ is as reliable and efficient as in-person administration.
