Common misconceptions about Traumatic Brain Injury among UK Employers

Thank you for participating in our survey.

 
We are interested in people's knowledge of brain injury, specifically the knowledge held by employers and those involved in recruitment. You have been asked to take part as you have been identified as an employer or someone who is involved in recruitment processes or making hiring decisions. 

 
This study involves completing the following questionnaire. The questions are based off an existing questionnaire looking at people's perceptions of brain injury that has been widely used in research on brain injury both in the UK and internationally. The questionnaire consists of 40 questions regarding aspects of prevention, damage, consequences of, recovery and other aspects of brain injury. .

 
Please answer every statement with either True, Probably True, False, Probably False or Don’t Know, whichever you deem to be correct. There also follows a series of basic demographic questions. 

 
All responses to this questionnaire will be kept anonymous and your IP address will not be recorded. At no point are respondents required to include any identifying information. Should you choose to participate you are able to withdraw at any time by closing your browser window. You will not be penalised for withdrawing your participation at any point however once you have submitted your data you will not be able to withdraw as it is anonymous. We predict that the questionnaire will take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. 

There is no compensation for participating in this study. However, your participation will be a valuable addition to our research and findings could lead to greater public understanding of the role of employers’ knowledge when returning to work after a brain injury
