Traumatic Brain Injury Mission Roadmap and Implementation Plan
The Morrison Government today welcomed the release of the Traumatic Brain Injury Roadmap and Implementation Plan.
Developed by the Traumatic Brain Injury Mission Expert Working Group, which is led by Connectivity CEO, Curtin University and Perron Institute’s Professor Melinda Fitzgerald, the Roadmap and Implementation Plan will guide the research investment and strategy for the Traumatic Brain Injury Mission to help achieve its goal.
The implementation plan targets the activities to achieve the objectives of the Mission within the 10-year timeframe. The three key aims have been identified as:
- Personalising care after TBI to achieve the best possible outcomes
- Improving the lives of people with TBI by using better interventions
- Identifying how to reduce barriers to support people to live their best possible life after TBI.
The plan has been developed to guide research investment over the life of the Mission and to make the research purpose and direction transparent.
Priority areas for investment are allocated across short, medium and long-term timeframes and are designed to integrate with each other.
The Mission forms part of the Australian Government’s Medical Research Future Fund supporting medical research in Australia.
