Alfred Health’s Acquired Brain Injury Rehabilitation Centre opened at Caulfield Hospital in September 2014 and the Institute for Safety, Compensation and Recovery Research (ISCRR) has been there every step of the way to support new research that promises to advance care for patients, like 29-year-old Diego Mercado.
The driving forces behind rehabilitation research at the Centre are researchers like Associate Professor Natasha Lannin, from La Trobe University and Alfred Health, and staff at the Centre such as Katrina Neave, Nurse Manager. Their desire to make interventions for people with Acquired Brain Injury even better, allowing many more people to resume the activities they did before they had the injury. This is inspirational research and both say their motivation comes from the patients who will benefit from the research. Patients like Diego Mercado.
