Aim: To provide a systematic review of the evidence regarding the impact of paediatric brain injury on friendship and social participation.
Method: The search used Ovid MEDLINE, Embase, PsychINFO and Web of Science databases and hand searched a key journal. Ten papers met inclusion criteria, five relating to friendship and five to social participation. The methodological quality of the articles was rated using set criteria.
Results: Four of the ten papers were rated as high quality. The main results showed that social participation decreased following brain injury and greater injury severity was associated with less participation. Three studies found that friendship networks remained the same; however two papers noted there were changes in friendship quality.
Conclusions: Brain injury has a negative impact on social participation in children and young people. Although the results on friendship are mixed, emotional problems amongst the brain injury group may cause difficulties in developing relationships over time. Further longitudinal studies may provide a greater understanding of this issue.
