The annual meeting of the Editorial Board was held in conjunction with ASSBI. The editors wish to thank the Editorial Board members for their ongoing support and commitments to the success of the journal. 

Douglas and Tate prize 2023

The 2023 Douglas Tate Prize for the best research paper published in 2022 was won by Nicola Kayes who was lead author in the article:

Developing connections for engagement in stroke rehabilitation

Nicola was awarded a cash prize donated by Cambridge University Press. Unfortunately Nicola was not present at the 2023 conference so we were unable to present the award in person.

The Douglas and Tate Prize, named after the two founding Editors of Brain Impairment (Professors Jacinta Douglas and Robyn Tate), will be presented to the best research article of the year annually at the ASSBI Conference Awards Ceremony.

The journal addresses topics related to the aetiology, epidemiology, treatment and outcomes of brain impairment with a particular focus on the implications for functional status, participation, rehabilitation and quality of life. Disciplines reflect a broad multidisciplinary scope and include neuroscience, neurology, neuropsychology, psychiatry, clinical psychology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech pathology, social work, and nursing. Submissions are welcome across the full range of conditions that affect brain function (stroke, tumour, progressive neurological illnesses, dementia, traumatic brain injury, etc.) throughout the lifespan.
