1. Familya   
 Definitely 0.74 0.46–1.21
 Yes, sometimes 1.21 0.71–2.04
 No, not at all 0.72 0.39–1.34

  1. OR odds ratio; CI confidence intervals; REF reference
  2. An OR value greater than 1 indicates increasing odds of accessing healthcare services, whereas an OR value less than 1 indicates decreasing odds of accessing healthcare services
  3. aAll logistic regression models adjusted for family composition, gender, age, education, country of birth, SEIFA, injury types, pre-injury health status, hospitalisation, days post-injury, and MCS score
