Brain Injury Rehabilitation

Brain Injury Rehabilitation

Home and Community Care (HACC) Social Skills Program Project

Enabling a wellness approach by measuring improved quality of life, health outcomes and functional status of people with an acquired neurological disability: A Community Care Research Project.

Funded by Health Department of WA non-recurrent HACC funding - GFA 2011-12 

The purpose of this project was to assess the extent the HACC Social Skills Program, operating out of the Brightwater Oats Street Slow Stream Rehabilitation Program, helped maintain and enhance functionality, wellness and quality of life for clients.

The project was conducted in 2012-2013.

The lived experience of rehabilitation after Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)

The lived experience of rehabilitation after ABI - how people and their families experience the Oats Street model of community based rehabilitation and the impact it has on them.

This project will examine the experience of rehabilitation from the perspective of the individual, then from that of the family. The two studies will combine to detail the impact of rehabilitation on the family unit. It will enable Oats Street to better consider the practical, emotional and motivational influences that shape a person's experience as they transition through our rehabilitation program.

The journey through rehabilitation 

The journey through rehabilitation: a study of people with Acquired Brain Injury in Western Australia.

This project aims to document the rehabilitation journeys of people with an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) living in WA. People with an ABI, their family member/significant other and health professionals involved in the care of people with ABI.

The study aims to describe the barriers and enablers for people with ABI and their family member/significant other on the journey, and identify the role of health professionals in supporting them. The findings will help identify new areas for intervention and provide direction for future research.
