Aimed at people working in the health and social care sectors, this training course has been developed in association with British Institute of Learning Disabilities and Voyage Care.
The aim of this e-learning training course is to provide learners with information about acquired brain injuries (ABIs) - what they are, possible causes and the impact they can have on people, their families and friends.
It will help learners to understand the kind of support that might be required to help people through rehabilitation, the possible barriers to recovery and ways of helping service users to cope with everyday tasks.
By gaining a better understanding of the implications of ABIs, learners will be able to offer more effective support to the people in their care.
This training course will give learners a basic understanding of the brain and the consequences and practical issues associated with caring for a person with an acquired brain injury.
Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is an injury caused to the brain after birth. It is not a brain injury caused by pre-birth medical issues.
This online training course explains that there are two types of brain injury:
Traumatic Brain Injuries are caused by an impact or jolt to the head and may be suffered in the event of an accident, fall or assault.
Acquired Brain Injuries have many possible causes such as infection, stroke, haemorrhage and medical accident.
Learners will explore and understand the possible cognitive, behavioural, emotional and physical effects and symptoms of a brain injury. The course will provide learners with information about how different methods of rehabilitation can help people with brain injuries regain some of the day-to-day skills that may have been lost due to the effects of brain injury.
This course entitled Acquired Brain Injury Awareness also includes a case study and a quiz about a person who is recovering from a brain injury and how it effects him and members of his family. The quiz test learners to see if they have gained an adequate understanding of acquired brain injury so that they can provide the support that a person recovering from a brain injury needs.
