The Centre for Brain Injury Rehabilitation
The Centre for Brain Injury Rehabilitation (CBIR) is situated at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Dundee. We are an area wide service, admitting people from across the whole of Tayside. We provide in-patient rehabilitation to adults aged 16-65 who have complex disability following a brain injury, and who will benefit from interdisciplinary rehabilitation before being discharged from hospital. All patients have an individual, goal orientated programme tailored to their own needs. With assistance from their families we help patients to achieve their goals in areas of health, activity and wellbeing. Families/carers will have an opportunity to attend the rehabilitation sessions.
Staff Within The Centre
Our team comprises nurses, doctors, occupational therapists, clinical neuropsychologists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, dietitian, technical instructors, clinical co-ordinator, service manager and artist. We also work closely with our colleagues in the acute hospital services and in the community based services. Student training is provided and there are often trainees and students from all disciplines in the centre, taking advantage of excellent learning opportunities.
