Research Projects at Headway
We aim to contribute to the existing knowledge base on Acquired Brain Injury. For this purpose, we undertake a number of research projects each year, with the aim of publishing our findings in relevant scientific journals, as well as using the results to further improve and develop our services. Examples of previous projects can be found here.
Proposals for such research projects are first submitted to our Research Ethics Committee, and following approval, volunteers are invited to take part in the study wherever relevant. Our research projects employ a range of methods, depending on the issue under investigation, such as client interviews, questionnaire information, neuropsychological data, EEG and other physiological measures.
