Invisible disability: Indigenous women living with traumatic brain injury
Domestic and family violence that leads to traumatic brain injury is a significant disability concern, yet little is known about the intersection of the two for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. They experience unacceptably high rates of head injury: 69 times higher than other Australian women.
The project will seek to bridge the gap between research and practice and help to inform the service delivery of disability, health and family violence agencies.
This project is a qualitative exploration with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women with traumatic brain injury, their families and the services who support them.
