- Brief summaryCaregivers of patients with acquired brain injury (ABI) often experience high levels of burden, which effects their physical and psychosocial well-being profoundly. Psychological distress is reported mostly by caregiving spouses. Especially returning home after rehabilitation appears to be a major hurdle for patients and their partners. We propose a blended care (eHealth and face-to- face) intervention, which includes psycho- education, skill-building and problem-solving, and is aimed at increasing feelings of mastery in partners of ABI patients. The aim of this study is to implement and evaluate this blended care support program. We expect partners to experience an increased caregiver mastery. Furthermore, we expect improvements on caregiversí burden, strain, coping, care-related quality of life, participation, family functioning and emotional functioning. For patients we expect improvements on participation, family functioning and emotional functioning.
