Family/Carer Survey

Sunday, January 20, 2019

BIAT invites you to take part in a survey that will inform the creation of a resource guide for family members and carers of people living with brain injury.

BrainLink (Victoria) is working with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to create a resource guide to assist families, particularly those in regional or remote areas, take on their new role as carers. The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania (BIAT) is working with BrainLink to ensure the guide is also a useful resource for Tasmanian families.

We have put together a survey and if you are, or know of, a family member or carer of a person with brain injury or a degenerative neurological condition we would very much appreciate if you could go online and complete the survey at your earliest convenience. The link to the survey is:- https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8TTT7YB - it should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

The information we collect from the survey will be used to develop a practical guide to help family members better understand, manage and reduce the impact of their caring role for someone with an acquired brain injury (ABI) or degenerative neurological condition. The plan is to follow the survey up with a series of focus groups; we will let you know more when we have firmed up the details.

If you would prefer to complete a paper copy of the survey and post your responses to us, please download a printable version of the survey here, and post it to us at: Brain Injury Association of Tasmania, PO Box 4580, Bathurst St Post Office, Hobart TAS 7000.

Alternatively, you can call us on 1300 242 827 to complete the survey over the phone.

Thank you!
