Thursday, February 15, 2018

Bryony Kitter, a Masters student from the Univeristy of the Sunshine Coast, is conducting a survey for caregivers of people with an ABI and would love to hear from you.

The survey asks caregivers to reflect on their experience as a a primary caregiver and provide insight regarding both the positive and negative aspects of their experience.

The research aims to contribute to the understanding of how to improve caregivers' quality of life and therefore improve the rehabilitation process of the individual with an ABI.
