We 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.
We do this in part through the Monash-Epworth Rehabilitation Research Centre (MERRC), aiming of maximising functional, psychological and social outcomes.
MERRC aims to:
MERRC was established in 2000, bringing together the resources and expertise of Monash University with that of Epworth Hospital to conduct research in trauma rehabilitation.
We offer a range of resources including Mild Head Injury Booklets, and the Brain Injury Driving Self-Awareness Measure.
We have won numerous awards since our establishment, including Program Lead Jennie Ponsford being appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) in the 2017 Queen's Birthday Honours List.
