Study Overview - by Project Lead Researcher
People recovering from TBI can experience a range of widely recognised problems (e.g. functional, cognitive, psychological, social) of varying severity, duration and impact both on themselves and their families. However, it is known that community based care for people recovering from TBI is fragmented and access to different types of services is dependent on where you live.
The aims of the study are: (i) to explore the experience of living with the after-effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) among adult patients discharged back home from hospital and to determine if care needs are being met, and (ii) to produce a set of recommendations for improving integrated care in the community for people who have had a TBI.
