Aims

The aim of this programme is to provide insight into the common presentation of brain injury, how to identify someone who might have a brain injury and expert guidance on how you can support people with a brain injury. We examine the effects a brain injury can have behaviourally, emotionally, developmentally and physically on an individual, their relationships and their interaction with our society and the community.

The main aim of the programme is to increase understanding and prepare staff to work with brain injured individuals. Drawing on the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust model of rehabilitation, the programme provides frontline professionals with the tools to support service users with the complex needs that are after associated with brain injury.
