This study aimed to determine the prevalence of anxiety specifically related to discharge in a group of 42 individuals who had sustained moderate to severe acquired brain injury and who were imminently due to return home following a period of inpatient neurorehabilitation. The study also aimed to explore differential relationships between psychological factors (self-efficacy and health control beliefs) alongside the relative influence of demographic (age, gender and ethnicity) and clinical (medical diagnosis and injury location) characteristics on discharge-anxiety.
