Home > News > LIVING WITH SOMEONE WITH A BRAIN INJURY? You are needed!

People are needed to take part in a research project about relationships following brain injury.

 What is the research about?

How wives/husbands/partners of someone with a brain injury feel about their relationship following the injury, and how this has an impact on how they understand and manage difficult situations that may arise with their spouse/partner.

What will you have to do?

  • Meet with the researcher (myself) for between 45 and 75 minutes
  • Meet at a time and date suitable to you
  • Meet at a convenient location, such as your home or a local Headway
  • Complete a questionnaire and answer some questions

Am I eligible to take part?

You can take part in this research if you answer ‘yes’ to all of the following questions:

  • Does your wife/husband/partner have a brain injury (including traumatic brain injury (head injury), stroke (including haemorrhagic strokes), brain tumours, brain infections (e.g. encephalitis) and anoxic brain injury (i.e. brain has been starved of oxygen such as by drowning))
  • Did you live together before the brain injury?
  • Are you still living together?
  • Were you in a relationship for at least 5 years prior to the brain injury?
  • Did your wife’s/husband’s/partner’s brain injury happen at least 9 months ago?
  • Did your wife’s/husband’s/partner’s brain injury happen less than 10 years ago?

I am interested, what do I do next?
