This research aims to investigate the experiences of UK case managers of safeguarding issues and procedures regarding their clients with acquired brain injuries. The study survey will run until the end of May and interested case managers will be invited to take part in interviews to gain a better understanding of the current issues and handling of safeguarding issues with clients with brain injuries. Initial findings will be reported at the BABICM conference in June.

The study has now finished and data analysis is ongoing. The team hope to present the findings of this study at the BABICM conference in June 2022. Preliminary analysis has identified the importance of the relationship between case managers and clients, with newer clients and case mangers working with newer clients experiencing the most upheaval as a result of COVID. The findings also identify the impact of lockdowns and educed contact on both clients but also on case managers themselves.
