Douglas and Tate prize 2020

The 2021 Douglas Tate Prize for the best research paper published in 2020 was won by Clive Skilbeck who was lead author in the article: Skilbeck, C., Thomas, M, Holm, K. (2020) Predicting mood outcome following traumatic brain injury (TBI): PTA & demographic variables. Brain Impairment, 21, 65-85.

Clive was awarded a cash prize donated by Cambridge University Press. Unfortunately as the 2021 conference was totally online 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, epilepsy, etc.) throughout the lifespan.
