The aim of the Monash-Epworth Rehabilitation Research Centre is to conduct ethical, innovative and internationally competitive research investigating outcomes and the effectiveness of intervention programs for individuals with brain injury or other injury sustained as a result of trauma, with the ultimate aim of maximising their functional, psychological and social outcomes.
The Centre aims to:
- Develop its trauma and brain injury rehabilitation research programmes in a clinical context
- Identify factors associated with outcome following brain injury and trauma
- Developing and evaluating innovative interventions for key impediments to better outcomes following brain injury and trauma
- Translate outcomes from the research into more effective rehabilitation of individuals with brain injury and trauma, with the ultimate aim of maximising their quality of life
- Training, within a stimulating, collaborative and supportive environment, the next generation of scientist practitioners to develop and implement evidence-based neuropsychological assessment and treatment for brain injury
- Develop collaborations within the university, Epworth hospital and the wider research and clinical community, locally, nationally and internationally
- Support its research activities through competitive grant funding
- Publish findings in internationally reputable journals
- Disseminate findings widely through conference presentations
