The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) is committed to seeking new and imaginative solutions to meet the needs of our service users.
Research is an important part of this process. Our clinicians and research staff regularly engage in audit and service evaluation activities, and also carry out research, working in close collaboration with graduate, post-graduate students and academic and research institutions in a range of projects.
We aim to provide an overview of our innovation and research activities, share our knowledge, and capture everyone's imagination in order to make the outcomes of neurobehavioural rehabilitation ever better.
Our research mainly focuses on the following areas:
- Clinical outcomes and cost benefits of brain injury rehabilitation
- Technology to support cognition and independent living after acquired brain injury (ABI)
- Cognitive, emotional and functional impact of acquired brain injury
Our specialist knowledge from working in brain injury rehabilitation can inform legal practice and policy makers in issues such as mental capacity and compensation. Find out more about these publications.
