Abstract

It is estimated that half a million people in the UK are currently living with long term disability stemming from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Due to improvement in acute management, more TBI patients are surviving and needing in-patient neuro-rehabilitation. A care pathway is being planned to streamline services across the County of 2 million populations. Literature suggests that the initial period of transition to community is a time when individuals with TBI and their carers feel particularly unsupported. There appears to be a gap in the literature as to what is most beneficial to individuals during this transition. This pilot project aimed to explore with service users and carers their experiences of the transition from inpatient rehabilitation into their community to identify perceived gaps in services, what interventions they valued and their perceptions of how this transition could be better supported.
