Samenvatting Interest in how victims of traumatic injuries recover is increasing and a number of observational studies have now been done. There are very few intervention studies aimed at enhancing recovery, but there will be more as our knowledge base grows. Older recipients of traumatic injuries differ from the young in the types of injuries they sustain, in the way they respond to their injuries and in the consequences of even relatively minor injuries on their future independence. In this paper, we summarise our understanding of recovery after injury and consider this in more depth for older people with specific injuries. (Author/publisher)
