EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS

Invisible disability: Indigenous women living with traumatic brain injury

Background

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.

Aim

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.

Methods

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.

Significance

The research will result in a body of work that explores Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women's daily lives to understand the cultural, geographical and psychosocial needs and nuances of their lived experiences.
