Public Input Requested for the Brain Injury Summit

A Brain Injury Summit is scheduled for November 2-3, 2007 in Washington, DC jointly sponsored by the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) and the North American Brain Injury Society (NABIS).  You are invited to provide input into one or more of the focus areas listed below.  Your comments will be furnished to work group moderators who will write the final document. 

Acute Care
Sub-acute and Post-acute Care
Long-term, Community Integration & Case Management
Mild TBI & PTSD
Systems Issues
To provide input to the established work group questions, please click on this link.

The Summit will result in a white paper/position statement on improving the quality of care and long-term living for individuals with brain injury, including civilians, service members and veterans. Advocates at the federal and state levels and in the private sector will utilize the position paper for advocacy efforts. 

I encourage all those involved in the brain injury movement including persons with a brain injury, family members and professionals to participate in this important advocacy effort.

my 18 year old was involved in a car accident and suffered traumatic brain injury.he is now in a nursing home, I am on the internet every day looking for things to help my son and relating what I find to his doctors and care takers.from what I see most people with brain injuries are just made comfortable there is not alot of investigating in trying things to help and as far as rehab if you don't meet certain criteria in a certain amount of time brain rehab stops and unless that person has a family member who can continue to help bring that person back into the world as a functioning person as I said they are just made to be comfortable.We need more agressive investigating and treatment for my son and all the other victims of this horrible situation.
