Transcript of Factors influencing the use of electronic technology for persons following Traumatic Brain Injury

Gemma Duffield, Jacinta Douglas, and Robyn O'Halloran Factors influencing the use of electronic technology for persons following Traumatic Brain Injury Smart Technology Most effective approach to rehabilitation for memory impairment following TBI (DePompei 2008) 5 Themes identified: Client Team Device Training Task [no one] had ever heard to Google Calender, nor had any previous experience with using the system (McDonald et al., 2011) Individualised Task Training Device Client Team Consider cognitive and physical profile Tasks should be simple, repeated, individualised, and important The device should be simple, logical, consistent, fun, and include support The team need to be open-minded, comfortable, trained and own a device personally Training should be individualised, structured, frequent, holistic and ongoing "Pleasant change not to have to remind her husband to take his tablets" "Lack of technical knowledge or the time were not considered to be important obstacles" "Only 18 of the 63 who didn’t use devices themselves reported using them with patients" The critical design factor has been an interface that presents explicit and unambiguous option, enabling people to make sensible guesses about which buttons will accomplish goals… rather than having to remember a sequence of steps (Wright et al., 2001) "his motivation to act..showering and brushing his teeth was not particularly high, as they were identified by his mother". (McDonald et al., 2011) " the specific tasks respondents said they would be interested in performing with devices were not necessarily the ones for which they reported less than perfect success with their current strategies (Hart, Buchhofer, & Vaccaro, 2004)" "If one simplifies the tasks and provides enough teaching, sufficiently frequent with enough structure some patients with problems in acquiring new information may be able to learn to use a computer."

The data didn't reveal any attention lapses" Prior use of technology "All used at least one of their own" Emotional coping skills "ABI patients were as able as healthy participant...but they seemed to become upset more easily" (DeJoode, 2012) Individualised, structured Frequent "(average 37min) was less than the typical... suggesting more frequent sessions may be optimal to facilitate learning" (Ehlhardt, 2005) (Sohlberg, 2003) (Stapleton, 2007) (Linden, 2010) Interpersonal Communication Software Instruction Cognition Perceived Needs (O'Neil-Pirozzi et al., 2004) (Wade, 2001) (De Joode et al. 2012)
