Abstract

This project focused on knowledge translation of evidence-based communication and cognitive
strategies for persons with acquired brain injury (ABI). Research demonstrates effective
strategies, but the implementation of recommendations does not necessarily come to fruition
in everyday care contexts. Caregivers are often left to deal with the long-term consequences of ABI with limited support or understanding of ABI. This project aimed to develop a resource toolkit for caregivers of people with ABI (family, staff, or health care professionals). Potential users of the toolkit (e.g., caregivers, clinicians) reviewed the toolkit and provided feedback. Results of the feedback and implications are discussed.
