The Lifetime Support Authority (LSA) delivers the South Australian Government’s Lifetime Support Scheme (LSS). The LSS is a no-fault scheme which provides treatment, care and support for people who suffer very serious injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident in South Australia.
Our Research, Education and Programs (REP) framework strengthens the quality of services provided to Scheme participants and contributes to the body of knowledge in the disability and health sectors.
Join us for an insightful evening of presentations from REP grantees who will showcase their research and outcomes.
Flinders University – Positive Behaviour Support following Traumatic Brain Injury
Michelle Bellon will present on the design of a new community-based support service model for individuals with an acquired brain injury (ABI) requiring neuro-behavioural supports.
The research looks at the benefits and viability of using a family directed behaviour support program (FDBS) to train caregivers of those with ABI, to promote better behavioural support interventions.
Julia Farr Housing Association – Inclusive Home Technology Project
The Julia Farr Housing Association completed an Inclusive Home Technology Project trial with several Lifetime Support Scheme (LSS) participants, implementing and training participants and their caregivers in new assistive technologies installed in their homes.
This trial aimed to detail the scope, cost and outcomes of these technologies and allowed developers to produce a framework for their future implementation.
SAHMRI – Using Molecular Imaging for Precision Medicine Approaches to Spinal Cord Injury
The team at SAHMRI, led by Ryan Doig, have been working to develop a combined approach to predicting more accurately the prognoses of spinal cord injury (SCI) patients. Due to the various symptoms of SCI and the subsequently wide prognosis ranges, there is a lack of specific tools designed to adequately guide treatment and rehabilitation.
This project aims to combine short-term molecular imaging with long-term follow up to provide a new approach that will produce precise and personalised approaches to care for SCI patients.
Light refreshments are available on arrival.
