Associations between outcome of brain injury, self-awareness and risk: The development of the Brain Injury Needs Indicator (BINI) The relationship between self-awareness following brain injury is well recognised, however there is debate as to how prevalent and persistent lack of self-awareness is.
The impact of age on the outcomes of acquired brain injury and rehabilitation Studies show that age is associated with increased risk of sustaining certain forms of acquired brain injury (ABI) and that the incidence of traumatic brain injury (TBI) is growing among the those over 50. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of age on ABI outcomes on admission and discharge from rehabilitation.
Boundary crossing: A survey of staff perceptions and influencing factors This survey explored the perceptions of staff in care and rehabilitation settings regarding boundary crossings and the factors that influence how acceptable they find certain behaviours; and seeked to establish how confident staff feel managing boundary crossings and how often they perceive that they encounter these situations.
Predicting outcomes on admission to residential rehabilitation with the Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory: Truth or dare? The accurate prediction of outcomes following brain injury and rehabilitation has been elusive; partly due to the complexity of influencing factors and the lack of suitable methodologies. Our aim is to evaluate existing equations in a sample of older individuals with a greater proportion of severe injuries and to compare the existing with newly generated predictive models.
The relationship between quality of life and disability after acquired brain injury (ABI) Quality of life is defined by the WHO as an “individual’s perception of their position in life”. ABI is a main cause of disability, however, capturing a person’s subjective experience of their problems has gained increased relevance in recent years.
