Everyone has the right to participate in the decisions about their own life.
Researchers from Queensland University of Technology and La Trobe University are looking at ways to improve the process of supporting decision-making for people with cognitive disability (intellectual disability or acquired brain injury). The research will evaluate a training program for people who provide decision-making support. The research will also explore the experience of giving and receiving support. The training aims to improve the quality of the decision-making support and determine whether it results in better outcomes for the person who requires decision-making assistance.
The project is looking for people to participate in the study. Participants will be adults with a mild or moderate cognitive disability and those who regularly support them to make decisions. Supporters can be friends, family members or paid workers.
