Transforming Awareness, Literacy and Knowledge of Traumatic Brain Injury
TALK-TBI Research Project
The University of Tasmania is conducting a study exploring the experiences of people living with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). This includes individuals who have a TBI diagnosis, and their family or carers. These lived experiences will contribute towards efforts to improve community awareness and understanding of TBI, which may reduce social stigma, marginalisation, and exclusion for those living with a TBI.
The data and findings from the study will be used to increase community awareness of TBI through the development of educational resources and a public art event. Additionally, the study’s findings may inform agencies and service providers of the potential gaps in service provision and resources needed to support individuals living with TBI.
The University of Tasmania are wanting to recruit people who are:
- 15 years of age or over and live in Australia, and
- have sustained a TBI (concussion to severe injury), or
- have a family member who is living with TBI, or
- provide care to someone who is living with TBI.
