Behn, Nicholas and Togher, Leanne and Power, Emma (2011) Training paid caregivers to improve their conversations with people with traumatic brain injury (TBI). [Clinical Aphasiology Paper]
Paid caregivers are frequently involved in the lives of people with TBI with cognitive-communication disorders but no research has evaluated training to improve their interactions. This paper describes an RCT that evaluates a communication partner-training program for paid caregivers of people with TBI. Training was found to improve the skills of paid caregivers and have a significant impact on conversations that involved people with TBI. The long-term effectiveness of the intervention was demonstrated with skills maintained at 6-months follow-up. This research has implications for health professionals that work both with paid caregivers and people with severe TBI.
