SameYou challenges nurses to help transform recovery care & rehabilitation after brain injury

SameYou are delighted to sponsor the first Nightingale Challenge Global Solutions Initiative in partnership with Nursing Now. We believe that nurses have a critical role to play in brain injury recovery and should contribute to the development and innovation in this field.

Our challenge to nurses: Identify the gaps in brain injury rehabilitation needs and available services. Explain how nurses can transform recovery care and rehabilitation after a brain injury, and describe how your approach could be implemented.

Get involved

When you leave hospital… make sure recovery comes home with you.

When you leave hospital, it can feel like you are ‘falling off a cliff’. We are partnering with our wide community of clinicians and therapists to give you access to information that would not be readily available, and provide reassurance on your journey to recovery and finding your SameYou. 

Positive Minds: Introduction to living with difficult emotions

It’s healthy to experience a range of emotions. But after brain injury, you may feel overwhelmed by difficult thoughts and feelings. Dr Zoe Fisher offers a helpful new perspective on sadness, stress and anger.

Positive Minds: Learning to accept difficult emotions

Dr Zoe Fisher shares a metaphor for accepting or avoiding difficult emotions – to help you move towards the things that are important to you, instead of struggling against painful thoughts and feelings.

Positive Minds: Introduction to mindfulness

When we experience negative emotions, it’s usually because we’re dwelling on something in the past or worrying about the future. Mindfulness can help you to be present. Lowri Wilkes talks through a simple exercise to get you started.

N-ROL is a telerehabilitation initiative with UCLH Queens Square which was made possible thanks to your generous fundraising.

During COVID-19, we knew people with stroke and other brain injuries were spending less time in hospital receiving neurorehabilitation. Rehabilitation is often the forgotten part of the care pathway – but it’s vital for achieving the best recovery.

SameYou wanted to find a way of helping community rehabilitation teams by offering additional online group based neurorehabilitation to people directly in their own homes.
