Congratulations to Transitional Rehabilitation Service (TRS), who have reached a major milestone after receiving $14.6 million by the Queensland Government in 2016 to support a new pilot service geared towards improving the pathway of care for patients with an acquired brain injury.
The TRS pilot helps patients transitioning from hospital to the home with an intensive 8 to 12-week therapy program tailored to individual needs. Patients learn new skills to maximise health and functional outcomes to help them live independently and reintegrate back into the community.
The pilot has now been in operation for 3 years and is delivering promising results with 60% of patients now being able to return to work, study or volunteer. The TRS team has pivoted and rapidly altered how they deliver services during COVID-19 with 70% of clients receiving interventions via the use of telehealth or phone services. This rapid response in service delivery ensures patients and their families continue to receive support and therapy for long-term success during this unprecedented time.
We’re proud to see how this innovative pilot service is delivering positive benefits to patients with an acquired brain injury and their families. Read more about the great work of TRS in their latest newsletter (PDF, 370KB).
