Traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one form of acquired brain injury (ABI). It occurs as the result of some external force being applied to the brain. People in the 14 to 24 age group are more likely than people of other ages to get a TBI. Men are more likely than women to get a TBI. Road traffic accidents are the most common cause of TBI. A second peak in incidence is after 75 years of age. The main cause for the elderly is falls.

About the site

This site supports learning for working with people with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The content on the site uses materials developed by a wide range of practitioners working in brain injury units in NSW, Australia. People with brain injuries and their family members have also generously shared their stories of living with brain injury in order to help people learn about working with people with TBI. The site is supported and funded by the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation. The site is managed by Paul Bullen.
