Resource Facilitation | Research, Training & Outcomes Center
FOR BRAIN INJURY @ REHABILITATION HOSPITAL INDIANA
Promoting “best practices” in brain injury research, education, resource facilitation and vocational rehabilitation

RF Research & Training Center 

The RF Research & Training Center (RTC) was created in 2016 and is a direct result of the RHI Resource Facilitation Department's sucesses in the areas of brain injury and vocational rehabilitation. These successes along with many new requests and opportunities, have led to the creation of the RTC.

Not only is Resource Facilitation evidenced-based -- we have produced the evidence and turned it into practice. Improving outcome for people with brain injury takes a village, a reality that becomes a challenge when resources and capacities may be very limited or absent. As such, our mission is to build statewide and national capacity to achieve evidence-based vocational outcomes for people with brain injury through research, training and education.

Research

Training & Education

The RHI Resource Facilitation program has more than doubled the national average in returning people with brain injury to work. It is the consequence of 6 years of research and program development. We have completed two randomized trails and two prospective clinical cohort studies that have driven how we structure and manage the Resource Facilitation Program.
Our areas of interest include:

  • Brain Injury Education and training

  • Brain and the Criminal Justice System

  • Resource Facilitation

  • Veterans

  • Vision Diorders
