Postural Care and Pressure Management in Spinal Cord Injury. Does having a Brain Injury increase risks?
Following on from the recent series of presentations by Rosie Bartlett, hosted by BABICM, we would be delighted if you would participate in the questionnaire below, which will take you about 15-20 minutes to complete.
This series of presentations highlighted questions around the possible correlation of combined diagnoses of Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) and Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) in relation to poor outcomes around postural care and pressure management.
Anecdotal case information from participants raised the hypothesis that cognitive, executive impairment and reduced insight in people who had sustained mild to moderate brain injuries were significant factors in maintaining good postural management and also increased the risks associated with development of and treatment of pressure ulcers. BABICM are now raising this survey to explore this hypothesis and to attempt to gain further understanding into the extent to which this is considered a factor of significance by case managers working with people over longer periods, with a view to potentially exploring this hypothesis further with research partners.
The questionnaire has a mixture of questions around numbers of clients and opportunities to express your thoughts through open text responses. Both are important in gaining insight into the extent of issues and your experiences.
Any and all information received from yourself will be confidential. Data included in this survey may be included in published outputs. All data will be anonymised in this process. There will be no direct benefit to you in taking part in this survey. It may, however, shape future work and guidance produced by BABICM and others. Your participation is purely voluntary and you can withdraw at any time.
