Carers Research Project

Are you a partner or family member caring for someone with a brain injury who has behaviour that you find challenging?


If so, would you be interested in taking part in a questionnaire as part of worthwhile research being carried out at the University of Birmingham? 

This questionnaire aims to learn how carers of family members/partners with an acquired brain injury (brain damage caused by any event after birth) understand behaviour that they find challenging and how they help the person they are caring for. We are interested in family carers in particular because little is known about responses to challenging behaviour within the home environment. It is important for us to understand more about carers’ responses to challenging behaviour so that we can find ways to support them and the person they are caring for.

Participation in the research should take no more than 10-15 minutes of your time.  The research is all done on-line, so you can do it as and when you please.  Your participation will be completely anonymous and completion of the questionnaire is not compulsory. To find out more, please click on the link below or type it in to your web browser:

This research is being conducted by Grace Major, Theresa Powell and Nick Alderman at the University of Birmingham, in conjunction with Partnerships in Care.


Thank you for your time!
