The Insurance Commission of Western Australia supports this research to find innovative rehabilitation and care solutions for individuals living with neurotrauma injuries caused from vehicle and workplace accidents. The Insurance Commission’s overall aim is to increase the independence of its claimants, reduce care costs, and keep insurance premiums affordable.
And finally, thank you to our team of peer reviewers, whose generous assistance in this process is invaluable.
Best of luck to all of our neurotrauma researchers!
