Research Questionnaire (RQ) – Research on the Impact of People Living with Brain Injury
Given the complex and changing service systems supporting individuals with ABI, the Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA) through funding and support from the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF) is revising the OBIA research questionnaire. OBIA and ONF recognize the need for data to inform advocacy, education and service development for individuals living with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their families. The questionnaire has been used to acquire data reflecting the impact of ABI from persons with lived experience for over 25-years will be revised to ensure easy accessibility for providers, families and PLEx groups.
The revised RQ will launch in late 2019 and will record factors such as a person’s access to services and gaps and/or barriers within the system. The goal is to provide relevant research data to better inform healthcare policy makers, healthcare region planners, insurers and researchers who are examining ways in which people living with a brain injury can be better served.
