This session will describe an ongoing research project that engages caregivers of children with TBI and medical providers who care for these children in a qualitative study focused on improving the continuum of care for children with TBI. Caregivers participated in semi-structured interviews, and the themes generated from these interviews will be used to guide focus groups with medical professionals. The opinions and experiences of these key stakeholders will be used to drive future research and clinical pathways aimed at improving the long-term care provided to children who experience a TBI.
Describe themes generated from caregivers of children with TBI in regards to service provision and long-term care needs.
Describe themes generated by medical professionals, in response to caregiver themes, in regards to service provision and long-term care needs for children with TBI.
Describe directions for clinical pathway changes to address the themes identified in this project.
