About us

The Traumatic Brain Injury Network aims to unite people, services and research to discover how to prevent and optimise recovery from traumatic brain injury. More can be achieved by working together.

Our aims

We aim to:

  • Connect those affected, researchers, clinicians, service providers and policymakers
  • Encourage new researchers and grow capacity in the field
  • Stimulate new ideas and new ways of ‘doing’
  • Prioritise research ‘that matters’ to patients and their whānau and services
  • Provide evidence of what works to support consistent, high quality healthcare across New Zealand
  • Facilitate translation of research findings into everyday life to make a difference

Research areas

TBIs can affect people of all ages and so our research includes people across the lifespan from birth until older age.

Our work explores injuries sustained in different settings like sport, work, everyday injuries, violence, falls, and motor vehicle accidents.
