Murdoch Children’s Research Institute – Assessment & management of agitation in children following moderate to severe ABI

We are inviting you to take part in a survey about current approaches to assessing and managing impaired consciousness and agitation for children and adolescents with moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).

This research project is being undertaken in Australia and New Zealand and is open to health professionals currently working with children and adolescents (0-18 years) with moderate to severe TBIs in the early stages of recovery post-TBI (i.e., from initial hospital admission to discharge from inpatient rehabilitation). This includes, but is not limited to, doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals (e.g., psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech pathologists). 
This survey contributes to a broader program of research, the ABI Translation Project. This project is funded by The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation. The findings of this project may help to improve the care that children and adolescents with brain injuries receive in hospital in the future. 
What you will be asked to do
This research involves completion of one survey. You will be asked to provide information about your background, experience, and work context. You will then be asked to answer questions about how you assess and manage agitation in children and adolescents with moderate to severe TBI. This includes multiple-choice and open-ended questions. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
