Abstract

To date there have been few studies that have examined the experience and outcomes of people with TBI who live in SSA. Each year in Victoria, 12-15 people sustain a catastrophic ISCRR Research Report NGE-M-12-040 Page 6 of 14 brain injury in a transport accident, whilst approximately 8-10 sustain workplace-related catastrophic injury. Both of these groups require long term paid support to live in the community. Currently in Victoria, there more than 170 people in receipt of compensation from TAC or WorkSafe who lived in SSA funded by the Schemes.
