New publication on case management after brain injury

Tue 23 Apr 2024

We are delighted to have added a new freely downloadable publication to our Information Library on case management after brain injury.

The new publication offers information on what case management is, how case managers can support brain injury survivors and the process of accessing a case manager.

Case management after brain injury is part of Headway’s Practical issues series.

After a brain injury, it might be necessary to appoint a case manager to help with making practical arrangements and managing the co-ordination of care. 

A case manager is responsible for overseeing, co-ordinating and managing the overall care and/ or rehabilitation of their client. Case managers working with brain injury survivors should have specialist knowledge of brain injury, as well as knowledge of health and social care, rehabilitation and other professional support. Case managers can come from a variety of professional backgrounds, such as social work, occupational therapy, physiotherapy or nursing. There are case managers working in statutory services (NHS or social care), medico-legal settings and independent practice. However, most brain injury case managers are privately funded so may only be accessible through private referrals and interim compensation payments. Different clinical bodies might use different names for case managers, for instance, integrated commissioning boards (ICBs) might call case managers ‘neuro navigators’.

The publication has been kindly sponsored by the British Association of Brain Injury & Complex Case Management (BABICM), who also contributed to the development of the resource. Our thanks go to BABICM’s Professional Practice and Membership group (PPMG) for their assistance.
