Help the Fraser Health Acquired Brain Injury Services create a program that best meets the needs of the community. They are seeking two patient partners to share their experience in the development of a path forward for their services.
Acquired Brain Injury Services – Fraser Health
The Fraser Health Acquired Brain Injury Services program wants to understand the needs of people with acquired brain injury to help them develop and implement a strategic plan. A strategic plan often includes:
• A description of the services that are provided
• The goals of the services
• Details on how the services work together, and
• Topics to focus on
You will provide input on what’s important to those living with acquired brain injuries.
Level of Engagement
This opportunity is at the level of consult on the spectrum of engagement. The promise to you is that the health care partner will listen to and acknowledge your ideas and concerns, and provide feedback on how your input affected the decision.
Open to volunteers from across Fraser Health communities who:
• Are a patient who has experienced an acquired brain injury or a caregiver to someone with an acquired brain injury.
An acquired brain injury (or ABI) is any sudden damage to the brain that happens any time after you are born. It can change how the brain normally works and can be temporary or permanent.
• Number of vacancies: 2
• Date/Time: Meetings will be 1 or 2 times, when you are available, with a team member to share your experiences and ideas.
• Commitment: One-two, one hour telephone zoom calls, one – two times, for a maximum of six months.
• Location: Telephone, MS Teams or via Zoom.
No out-of-pocket expenses are anticipated for this engagement opportunity. However, if you meet the eligibility criteria, but have concerns about your ability to participate, please contact Jami Brown to see if support options are available. We are always seeking to better understand and reduce barriers to participation.
Acquired Brain Injury Services is a regional program that provides community support services, day programs, and specialized community beds to adults living with moderate to severe brain injuries.
