In Australia, over 700,000 people have sustained a brain injury that restricts their normal daily activities to some extent (BIA 2020).

Among those with brain injuries, three-quarters are under 65, and two-thirds acquired their brain injury before the age of 25 (BIA 2020).

What is an Acquired Brain Injury?

The umbrella term acquired brain injury (ABI) refers to any type of brain injury that has occurred following birth (QLD DoH 2020). It may be the result of:

  • Trauma;
  • Stroke;
  • Brain tumour;
  • Poisoning;
  • Infection or disease;
  • Near drowning or another episode of reduced oxygen supply; or
  • Alcohol or drug abuse.
