The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Brain Injury Healthcare Technology Co-operative (HTC) is delivered in partnership by Cambridge University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and University Cambridge, and is based at Addenbrooke’s hospital.
The NIHR Brain Injury HTC is committed to ‘Patient and Carer Inspired Innovation’ to ensure that all perspectives of the care pathway are heard. A recent initiative focused on hearing from the patients directly (find link below), which highlighted the need to hear from families and friends of those who have cared for someone admitted to hospital with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
First of all, if you are a family member or friend of someone who has been admitted to hospital with TBI, the HTC asks that you kindly complete a short survey about your experience. This will give you the opportunity to tell us about your experiences, both the ups and the downs, with the choice of anonymity. The survey findings will provide the HTC with enough details to inform the next phase.
The online survey can be found here: https://addenbrookes.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/htc-family-carer-tbi
