An introduction to the BINI: Brain injury needs indicator

Register by Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Presenters: Dr. Sue Copstick, Sarah Clifford and Dr. Sara D S Ramos

Occupational therapists often work with individuals who sustained an acquired brain injury (ABI). Identifying and measuring the needs of these individuals is a complex process, as many of the ABI related difficulties are subtle and ‘hidden’ from view. This webinar will describe the development of the Brain Injury Needs Indicator (BINI), and how it can be used in practice to account for the role that the outcome of brain injury and an individual’s lack of awareness play in determining vulnerability and risk, and to provide health care professionals with evidence to recommend further assessment, therapy or support.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
1. Recognize “hidden disability” and the limitations of self-report measures of outcome after acquired brain injury.
2. Understand the link between outcome, self-awareness and risk in the context of assessment of people with acquired brain injury.
3. Use the results of the BINI to evidence the need for further assessment, therapy or support.
