Funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council, Moving Ahead brings together key experts from a range of partner universities, hospitals and research institutes in Australia and overseas. The Centre aims to improve outcomes for those with a TBI by developing empirically-supported treatments, addressing deficits in social skills, communication, mood, fatigue, self-awareness and self-regulation.”
