Before answering the questionnaire, please read the following and proceed as directed.
This questionnaire is intended for Traumatic Brain Injury survivors who are 18 years of age or older. The purpose of the aforementioned questionnaire is to compile an overview of TBI Survivors. The questionnaire will address topics concerning the nature of your TBI, employed rehabilitation methods, daily-living activities, your state of mind, and general opinions of thoughts and emotions. When a certain amount of people have responded to the questionnaire, the results will be used to produce another questionnaire for non-TBI survivors, to identify any common misconceptions among the general population. Furthermore, the information compiled by this questionnaire may be used in different avenues of research concerning Traumatic Brain Injuries, along with inquiries into intervention and prevention strategies for the obstacles many Traumatic Brain Injury survivors encounter.
The questionnaire will take approximately one to two hours to complete and is strictly anonymous. The questionnaire is divided into seven sections, please note that it is acceptable to skip questions that you do not wish to answer. The majority of questions will require short-answer responses with a few multiple-choice questions interwoven between them.
