Concussion in Sport (2012)

“Brain Injury Australia recommends that the Australian Football League, the Australian Rugby League Commission, and Australian Rugby Union co-fund an independent, large-scale, prospective study – comprising cohorts from all three sports – examining the risk factors for as well as the incidence, assessment, short and long-term effects, management and potential prevention of concussion in child and adolescent players.”

Out of Sight, Out of Mind: People with an Acquired Brain Injury and the Criminal Justice System (2011)

“Brain Injury Australia recommends that the Australian Government and the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) – through the Community and Disability Services Ministers’ Conference (CDSMC) – enlist stakeholders such as the Prisoner Health Information Group, the Juvenile Justice Research and Information Group and the National Forensic Disability Working Group to modify reception screening and other assessments to render optimum detection of ABI. This will serve to fulfill both the Australian Government’s obligations as a State Party to Article 31 (“Statistics and data collection”) of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) as well as COAG’s commitment to “good data” under the National Disability Strategy.”

Inflicted Traumatic Brain Injury in Children (2010)

“Brain Injury Australia recommends the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) provides funding to Brain Injury Australia to convene a short-term working group – comprising professionals involved in child health, welfare and protection – to produce a nationally agreed descriptor for trauma to a child‟s head and brain as the result of abuse.”

Falls-Related Traumatic Brain Injury (2009)

“Brain Injury Australia recommends that the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs – with the Department of Health and Ageing, and State and Territory departments of health – works to ensure that, in all government-funded falls prevention planning and programming “brain injury” appears , by name, alongside any other falls injuries.”

Children, Young People and Acquired Brain Injury (2008)

“Traumatic Brain Injury is highly preventable. Brain Injury Australia recommends that, as part of a whole-of-government approach to Acquired Brain Injury, the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs encourages the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government to direct the Australian Transport Council – comprising Federal and all State and Territory Ministers with transport responsibilities – to revise all subsequent National Road Safety Action Plans (constituting the National Road Safety Strategy 2001-2010; aimed at a 40% reduction in the number of road-related fatalities by 2010) to include children as a distinct target for its strategy to “Improve Equity Among Road Users.”
