This article aims firstly to describe the contribution of a keyworker in improving the patient-centred partnership between brain-injured patients, their carers and rehabilitation staff in a hospital-based neurorehabilitation setting. Secondly, the outcome of a survey exploring the usefulness of the applied keyworker model in a multidisciplinary brain injury rehabilitation service is presented. The outcome suggests that the majority of the 14 patients and relatives were satisfied with the set-up of the keyworker sessions and found both the support received and the information sharing helpful. All the seven rehabilitation staff found the keyworker system useful for involving patients and their relatives in the rehabilitation programme.
