Historically, services for individuals with multiple co-morbidities have operated within the silos of their respective service streams. This left gaps in care that stemmed largely from a lack of awareness and understanding. Through the use of education, Provincial Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Navigators have forged a way towards integration and a more holistic view of care, by providing a means for professionals working outside the field of ABI, to build their confidence to work with survivors of ABI. As an introductory tool across various platforms and geographic boundaries, such work builds towards a future that bridges the gaps between care needs.
Participants will learn how education increases service provision for individuals who struggle with complex needs. A variety of successful examples within the justice system will be provided to participants, encouraging them to consider and implement adaptations within their own Agencies.
