About the Project
Data-linkage study of exposure to traumatic brain injury (TBI) and subsequent offending behaviour
High numbers of prisoners have been exposed to traumatic brain injury. What is unclear is whether this exposure is linked to subsequent offending behaviour.
Examine the temporal sequence of exposure to TBI and subsequent offending behaviour.
Design & Method
Data-linkage study using a cohort of TBI exposed and unexposed individuals in Western Australia
