Survey for Caregivers – Positive Coping in the Caregiving Family of Persons with Aquired Brain Injury

Through collaboration with the NYU School of Medicine (NYUSoM), the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) and its affiliates BIAV are conducting a survey to learn about how families of individuals with brain injury experience positive outcomes as a result of being caregivers. The objective of this study is to develop a scale to measure posttraumatic growth in caregiving family members of persons with acquired brain injury (ABI). We invite you to participate in this research survey. 

The survey will take less than 20 minutes, and your participation is entirely voluntary and anonymous. Your decision to participate will not affect your employment or reputation. Record of participation cannot be linked to you or to your family member with ABI. No personal identifiable information, including IP address, will be used or collected. Completing the survey implies consent. You can withdraw from completing the survey at any time. 

If you have any questions about the survey, please call or email Principal Investigator Sonya Kim, Ph.D., Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, NYU School of Medicine, at (212) 263-4849 or at [email protected].

The study is approved by the NYUSoM Institutional Review Board (IRB Protocol s19-01400) and funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) under the Switzer Research Fellowships Program Grant. If you have any questions or concerns about your rights as a research subject, please contact NYUSoM IRB at 212-263-4110.
