Our Senior Rehabilitation Worker Emilie is conducting research into the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on individuals with a brain injury and their carers, as part of her Postgraduate Masters dissertation. She is recruiting clients of Headway Cambridgeshire or carers of Headway Cambridgeshire clients (18+years old) to take part in an interview about how the pandemic has affected you.
The research aims to be one of the first in-depth studies to explore the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the mental wellbeing of individuals with a brain injury, and those who care for them. It is hoped that by highlighting the effect that the pandemic has had on people with a brain injury and their carers, and how they have adapted to changes as a result of the pandemic, that this may help inform how best to support these individuals going forward.
If you are interested in sharing your experiences and taking part in the study, you can find out more on the Participant Information Sheet or by contacting Emilie on 01225 576550 or firstname.lastname@example.org
This study has been approved by the University of Suffolk Social Sciences and Humanities Ethics Committee.
“ As a brain injured person it can sometimes be hard to feel positive about your progress but the gym instructor at Headway Cambridgeshire pushes me in the right direction and helps me to feel more enthusiastic about what I am able to achieve and what I might achieve in the future. ”
