Project Description

This project will:
• bring together an internationally recognized, expert interdisciplinary team with clinical and research knowledge regarding TBI, smart home and mobile technologies used for cognitive support, quality experimental design and established technology partnerships – team disciplines include neuropsychology, occupational therapy, speech pathology, physiotherapy, social work and architecture;
• scope availability and applicability of a range of current and emerging smart home and mobile technology solutions that may be used to compensate for executive cognitive dysfunction experienced in community living after TBI;
• use targeted research methods, delivering a series of Single Case Experiments across Victoria and NSW (~ 20 in total) which rigorously test the effectiveness of a suite of smart home and mobile technologies, consider cost-benefit and deliver high quality evidence regarding technology interventions; and
• translate project findings into a suite of freely-available digital, written and face-to-face educational resources to grow capacity of key stakeholders to harness the potential of technology to build independence and reduce cost of care for people who experience executive dysfunction following TBI.
