Determinants of successful community transition for individuals with acquired brain injury and their families (2008–2011)

Abstract:
A central concern of the current Queensland Bilateral - Commonwealth-State/Territory Disability Agreement is issues in service provision for people with acquired brain injury (ABI). This study aims to develop a model of the factors that contribute to successful transitions back into the community for individuals with ABI and their families, by investigating reasons for sentinel events (eg. financial crisis, family breakdown, institutionalisation) during transition. Currently young adults with ABI lack services and support during this crucial phase. This study will inform service development to enhance short and long-term outcomes for this population and their families.'',
