As a current MBBS/PhD student, my research is centered on the contextual challenges associated with long-term follow-up of patients of whom have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
Using a mixed methods approach, I aim to explore innovative, evidence-based solutions to enable the collection of long-term outcome data, employing low-cost solutions to provide a novel technology at scale to assist in patient-reported outcome collection and facilitate long-term follow-up research.
