Brain Rehabilitation Guideline Development

Health Areas
Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury , Neurological Rehabilitation

Opportunity Purpose
Neurorehabilitation is meant to help people heal from a stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, sometimes participation can be difficult for people who have also experienced significant psychological trauma. We are bringing together a team of rehabilitation professionals, researchers and Patient Partners (including caregivers) to create guidelines to make neurorehabilitation more accessible for people who have also experienced trauma.

Patient Partners (including caregivers) will contribute alongside other researchers and clinicians to guideline development for neurorehabilitation. Following orientation and training, the Patient Partners will be provided material to read. Patient Partners will be asked to participate in an individual interview and to complete a questionnaire based on their lived experience. All can be done online/remotely.

It has been so rewarding to go from an idea to working with such a great group of dedicated people from so many different organizations towards a very fun and rewarding project. Several extremely engaged PVN members expressed interest in being part of piloting a patient virtual care peer support system. I am confident that this is the beginning of many more exciting collaborations!
