This report contains recommendations for the delivery of culturally competent and acceptable assessment, access to treatment and ongoing care of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have an acquired brain injury (ABI). The report was commissioned because of recognition that for some population groups, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians with a disability, equitable benefit can only be achieved if additional and specialised measures are developed and implemented to overcome disadvantage.
Funding was provided by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs to develop a report on how to prepare individuals, communities and services for the transition to the Australian Government's national disability scheme, DisabilityCare Australia. Brain Injury Australia and Synapse co-managed the project, and research was conducted by James Cook University.
Topics covered in the report include:
