Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to illuminate the changeover process, support and consequences experienced by adults who acquired traumatic brain injury (TBI). Fifteen persons were in-depth interviewed using a semi-structured interview guide. Data were analysed by latent-content analysis and structured into six themes.

Consequences were negative as well as positive. Significant others were important as a driving force for training and life-situation. The informants were initially satisfied with social supports but in the longer term became more critical regarding accessibility to such supports. The majority had difficulties in returning to working-life after injury. The outcomes seemed to be a prolonged process, probably never-ending, which gradually became integrated as a part of life.
