Caring for someone suffering with a brain injury can be complex. As such, enlisting the care services of experienced and qualified personnel is highly recommended. CPIMS staff are professionally qualified to provide services for people who have suffered traumatic brain injury and people with complex care needs. As we explain further in this blog.
Case management for brain injury
CPIMS provides services for people who have suffered a catastrophic injury, specialising in neurological brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and people with complex care needs.
Our case managers are coordinators of care services acting as advocates for individuals and family members. They will act on your behalf to manage finances; devise care plans and promote, enable and implement rehabilitative processes.
They also assist with vocational aspirations and activities, which includes social and educational activities and most importantly monitoring the long-term needs of all our clients.

Head trauma immediate needs assessments (INA)
CPIMS reviews any medical or other reports provided by the instructing party and then meets with the individual and family to undertake a detailed Immediate Needs Assessment (ISA) within two weeks. It is our policy to comply with the best practice guidelines under the Rehabilitation Code 2015. This ensures that assessment and identification of need is provided at the earliest opportunity and the injured party has access to case management support and rehabilitation as soon as possible.
We are also committed to raising brain injury awareness and reducing the stigma surrounding it by attending and sponsoring brain injury conferences. Read more about the latest brain injury conference that took place at the Lancaster House Hotel on 17th – 18th June 2016.
