Available to purchase for Students. This 60-minute webinar was presented by Prof Leane Togher and A/Prof Rachael Rietdijk on 23rd October 2020. Synopsis of session: Family members, friends, and carers often find it challenging to communicate effectively and positively with a person who has had a traumatic brain injury. Providing training to these communication partners has been found to be an effective approach. TBIconneCT is a manualised communication partner training program, suitable for delivery over telehealth, which was found to have positive outcomes in a clinical trial. This session will provide an overview of (a) the components of the TBIconneCT program, (b) the findings from the TBIconneCT trial and the clinical implications, (c) qualitative feedback from participants regarding the most important parts of the program, and (d) practical advice about working with people with TBI and their communication partners, including incorporating telehealth. Level aimed for: Basic to Intermediate Learning objectives: By the end of the session, attendees will: (i) be able to describe the TBIconneCT program, (ii) understand the clinical implications of the TBIconneCT trial findings, (iii) identify the aspects of the TBIconneCT training most valued by people with brain injury and their communication partners, and (iv) learn clinically applicable strategies for working for communication partners of people with TBI.

Our purpose is to bring together a multidisciplinary society of researchers, educators, and clinical practitioners to improve the lives of people with conditions impacting the brain and their support networks
