Purpose: To evaluate our current training programme for professionals involved in brain injury rehabilitation, which involves disability simulation, and to consider the ethics and consequences of such programmes. Method: Seventy-two professionals took part in a brain injury disability simulation exercise and completed questionnaires pre and post the workshop. Results: Results suggest that participants have increased insight into the challenges faced by people with brain injuries. Conclusions: We believe that brain injury simulation exercises help professionals increase their understanding of the impairments and disabilities that may follow brain injury and can therefore form an important part of a training programme for rehabilitation staff.
