Carers’ views wanted for University of Nottingham research project

Peer mentoring and returning to activities after stroke and other brain injuries.

A PhD researcher at the University of Nottingham would like to interview carers of people with acquired brain injury (whether traumatic brain injury, stroke or any other cause).

The project is investigating peer mentoring as a way of helping people with brain injury participate in activities. Peer mentoring involves a person with a brain injury helping someone with a more recent injury using the experience and knowledge they have gained.

We would like to know what carers think about peer mentoring and the issues affecting participation in activities after brain injury.

‘Carer’ could mean a spouse or partner of someone with a brain injury, or other family member or friend. You must be 18 years of age or over to take part in the study.

The interviews can be done by telephone and wouldn’t take much of your time. Your help can really contribute to our understanding of the issues.

If you are interested in taking part please contact Richard Morris at r.morris@nottingham.ac.uk. Alternatively, call 0115 823 0274.
