Integrating an Evidence-Based Clinical Exercise Physiology Service Model into a Comprehensive Multiprofessional Rehabilitation Service for People with Brain Impairment: An Integrated Knowledge Transla

About the Project

The aim of this project is to use an Integrated Knowledge Translation Framework (ITKF) to develop a method for translating the successful, stand-alone Adapted Physical Activity Program (APAP) model of service into the integrated, multi-professional  Acquired Brain Injury Transitional Rehabilitation Service (ABI-TRS).

The IKTF increases the prospects of successful translation because it includes the clinicians the end-users and key stakeholders in the knowledge generation and translation process.

Progress in this study includes:

  • Development of the Adapted Physical Activity Translation Working Group
  • Submission of first publication arising from the body of work
  • Submission of the project protocol for ethical approval
  • Development of timeline and project outcomes

Currently we have undertaken three focus groups with key ABI-TRS stakeholders in order to develop a plan for the successful translation of the APAP model.

Successful translation of the APAP model into the ABI-TRS service will empower people with ABI to pursue optimal health and functioning outcomes through engagement in physical activity which is safe, effective, enjoyable and sustainable.
