The overall purpose of this study is to investigate the rehabilitation process facilitating return to working life after acquired brain injury. Different aims is to study co-operation, possibilities and hindrances during this process.

Persons who acquired a brain injury as adults were interviewed using an interview guide focusing the experiences of the rehabilitation process. The informants had participated in a work rehabilitation program and successfully returned to work; at least 50% maintained employment for a minimum period of one year. In some cases, a person e.g. family member, service provider, and employer who had been of great importance and support for the rehabilitation process was also interviewed. The interviews were qualitative, in-depth, and are being conducted longitudinally.

Data will be structured and analysed by latent content analysis.
