Effects of Peer Mentoring on Caregivers of Patients With Acquired Brain Injury

Start date: January 8, 2019
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

Family caregivers often take on the demands of long-term caregiving after ABI. Early efforts to prepare family caregivers for the caregiving role after discharge from acute ABI inpatient rehabilitation may be beneficial in many ways. This study will look at the impact of participation in a one-to-one peer mentor program on the use of family support services and caregivers' emotional health and well-being (depression symptoms, stress). Participants in this study will include caregivers of patient admitted to the Shepherd Center ABI inpatient rehabilitation unit. Caregivers will be randomly selected to participate in the one-to-one mentor program. The program will include visits with a peer mentor who is the caregiver of an individual with an acquired brain injury. Participants will be able to choose a peer mentor that matches their personal situation and preferences. They will meet with the peer mentor about once a week during the patient's stay at Shepherd Center and may continue with phone calls up to 30 days post-discharge. Participants will be asked to complete a brief evaluation after each peer mentor interaction to determine the value of the interactions and their interest in continuing visits. Participants will be asked to take part in three interviews that will last 10-15 minutes. The first will be within the first two weeks at Shepherd Center and the second will be a few days after discharge. A third interview will be conducted by phone about 30 days post discharge.

Exploring the Use of the CO-OP With Children With EF Functions Deficits Following ABI

Start date: January 1, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Purpose: Acquired brain injury (ABI) in childhood are the cause of disabling motor, cognitive and behavioural disorders, with severe consequences on the later development of autonomy and learning, with long-term repercussions on independence for activities of daily living, and social and professional integration. Among cognitive disorders, executive function (EF) deficits are among the most frequent and disabling, with major consequences on the development of autonomy and the course of schooling and learning. The Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) could be an interesting approach for the rehabilitation of these consequences. CO-OP is a performance-based treatment approach for children and adults who experience difficulties performing the skills they want to, need to or are expected to perform. CO-OP is a specifically tailored, active client-centered approach that engages the individual at the meta-cognitive level to solve performance problems. Focused on enabling success, the CO-OP approach employs collaborative goal setting, dynamic performance analysis, cognitive strategy use, guided discovery, and enabling principles. It has been shown to be effective in a variety of populations, but has been little explored in children with ABI. Objectives To assess whether the use of CO-OP could be of interest in children with executive functions deficits following ABI, to improve their occupational performance, their executive functioning in everyday life and their cognitive processes constituting EF.

KneuroKnits: Participation and Anxiety in People With Neurological Conditions Participating in a Knitting Group

Start date: November 3, 2018
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The reported social benefits of knitting combined with the urgent need for social and activity-based programs in the disability community suggest that a knitting intervention may fill a substantial gap in available programs. Knitting may also be well suited to autistic strengths, combining sensory aspects (colourful sights, soft touch, rhythmic sounds), visual patterning, and repetitive actions. Surprisingly, no knitting programs for ASD or other conditions are reported in the literature. It is proposed that a knitting group can provide social and skill-building opportunities, improving real-world social outcomes for youth with ASD, and resulting in KneuroKnits, a program designed specifically to serve this need. The program will be designed and run by a collaborative team of clinicians, researchers, knitting experts, and a self-advocate with ASD. This program will enhance evidence supporting programs providing contexts for the dual goals of meaningful social interaction for young people with neurodevelopmental disorders, physical disabilities, and acquired brain injuries and building a real world creative skill that can facilitate social interaction within and beyond the program. This study will evaluate participants' experiences of the program as well as their levels of anxiety at various points during the program.

Community-based Occupational Therapy Intervention on Mental Health for People With Acquired Brain Injury

COT-MHABI
Start date: September 1, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The main purpose of this research project is to analyze the effectiveness of a Community-based Occupational Therapy Intervention on mental health for people with acquired brain damage. To this end, variables such as quality of life, occupational performance and balace, participation in significant roles and community integration will be measured. The research will be carried out as a non-randomized controlled trial study in which the participants in the experimental arm will receive a community-based occupational therapy intervention (domiciliary and telehealth intervention sessions) based on the stages of the Human Occupation Model's Remotivation Process. The participants at the control arm will receive the regular (public or private) services provision for this population profile. It is expected to be able to demonstrate the effectiveness of the intervention based on a positive result in the change in the variables, so as to increase the chance and performance of occupational participation after the acquired brain injury. Also, it is intended that families and the community are key elements of agency and support in occupational participation.

Exploring the Use of the Cognitive Orientation to Daily Occupational Performance Approach (CO-OP) With Children, Teenagers and Young Adults With Executive Functions Deficits Following Severe Acquired Brain Injury

REFECO-OP
Start date: November 20, 2020
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Acquired brain injury (ABI) in childhood are the cause of disabling motor, cognitive and behavioural disorders, with severe consequences on the later development of autonomy and learning, with long-term repercussions on independence for activities of daily living, and social and professional integration. Among cognitive disorders, executive function (EF) deficits are among the most frequent and disabling, with major consequences on the development of autonomy and the course of schooling and learning. The Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) could be an interesting approach for the rehabilitation of these consequences. CO-OP is a performance-based treatment approach for children and adults who experience difficulties performing the skills they want to, need to or are expected to perform. CO-OP is a specifically tailored, active client-centered approach that engages the individual at the meta-cognitive level to solve performance problems. Focused on enabling success, the CO-OP approach employs collaborative goal setting, dynamic performance analysis, cognitive strategy use, guided discovery, and enabling principles. It has been shown to be effective in a variety of populations, but has been little explored in children with ABI. The hypothesis that CO-OP is effective in improving the occupational performance and executive functioning of these children on a daily basis is emerging, but needs to be confirmed. This study falls within this framework. Primary objective: 1. To measure the distance maintenance of the knowledge acquired through rehabilitation, as well as the generalization and transfer into everyday life. 1. Maintenance of acquired knowledge 2. Generalization and transfer 3. Impact of a consolidation session on generalization and transfer Secondary objectives: 2. Gather the experience of family members/caregivers in accompanying their child in the CO-OP process outside of rehabilitation sessions. 3. Establish the parental educational style and identify whether there is a link between the parental educational style and the commitment of the family members/caregivers.

AppReminders - A Pilot Feasibility Trial of a Memory Aid App for People With Acquired Brain Injury

Start date: August 5, 2019
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

People with brain injury commonly experience difficulties with memory, concentration, attention and judgement, meaning that important everyday actions and tasks are not carried out or not completed, limiting the ability to live independently. Technology-based solutions, including smartphone applications, can help by providing prompts about intended actions at the correct time. However, memory and attention impairments mean people forget to set reminders or fail to set them accurately (e.g. setting the wrong time/date for events). Using co-design methods with prospective users, the investigators developed ApplTree, a smartphone reminding application with design features that can be personalised to individuals. ApplTree prompts reminder setting, supports reminder entry to improve accuracy, and delivers users with prompts at the appropriate times. A pilot randomised controlled trial will be conducted to provide crucial information to inform a future larger scale efficacy trial of ApplTree as an intervention to support memory in people with acquired brain injury.
