In terms of patient selection, the treatment theory will dictate the kinds of patients who are likely to demonstrate the most powerful and measurable impact on the treatment object under study. Even at this early stage, Whyte described how a comparison group might be called for, especially if the research is focused on the acute stage of recovery, in which rapid natural recovery is happening concurrent with the treatment. ), and how visible are the treatment ingredients and therefore how much blinding is realistic and, if it is not, how should bias be handed?

With enablement theory, a higher-level function can be broken down into lower-level functional components. Whyte described how treatment theory and enablement theory can bring distinct and complementary tools to a research agenda. 19 CRT INTERVENTIONS Treatment theory constrains the definition of a treatment, informs researchers’ understanding of what kinds of patients might respond to a given treatment, and informs the selection of appropriate outcome measures to determine efficacy. He described that treatment theory tells you whether a treatment should or should not succeed at changing its “direct object,” which may or may not translate into “effectiveness” in the sense of meaningfully improved function (as in the example of successfully strengthening leg muscles in two patients, one of whom has a terrible balance problem).

One way policy could reflect the provision of CRT is to facilitate the application of best-supported techniques in TBI patients in the chronic phase (where natural recovery is less of a confound), with the proviso that objectively measurable functional goals are articulated and tracked and that treatment continues only so long as gains are noted. To acquire more specific, meaningful results from future research the committee has laid out a comprehensive research agenda to overcome challenges in determining efficacy and effectiveness.
