The Guide to Living has been highly commended by the British Medical Association for meeting the needs of patients through the production and dissemination of accessible, well designed and clinically balanced information.
We have also received some wonderful feedback from people who have received copies of the Guide.
"The format is so important to provide ease of reading and not to present as a daunting task. Overall the literature is very helpful and provides practical information." Gillian, Grimsby
The BIRT Guide to Living - for adults with brain injury is a comprehensive and easy to use publication for people with brain injury, their families, carers and professionals working with them. Produced by the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT), free copies are available from BIRT services across the UK, as well as from our seminars and conferences, or via post by sending us an A4 padded SAE and £2.50 for postage.
Ann Buckler, Director of BIRT said: “The BIRT Guide to Living is the first comprehensive guide of its kind. Written by BIRT’s clinicians, therapists and experts in brain injury, BIRT's Guide is designed to offer support, practical advice and helpful information to those living with - or affected by - brain injury, and a copy will be given to all our service users and their families. Our hope is that, through our extensive networks, we can get the Guide into the hands of people with brain injury and their families, and that it will become a trusted source of information to them and professionals supporting them.”
