What was this study about?

In this study, we tested a new questionnaire that tells us about the needs of family members after a child or youth has had an acquired brain injury (ABI).

The author (Kreutzer) of the adult Family Needs Questionnaire (FNQ) gave us permission to adapt it so that it would be a good fit for families of children with ABI. The adapted measure has been named the Family Needs Questionnaire – Pediatric Version (FNQ-P), and is designed to be completed by a primary caregiver of a child or youth with an ABI. Clinical researchers in Sweden and Australia joined in this study in which we tested the FNQ-P to see how well it works as a measure of family needs post-ABI.
