Public Policy and Advocacy Index of Position Statements
This is an index and compilation of the policy statements of the Brain Injury Network, an all brain injury survivor brain injury advocacy and policy nonprofit organization. These policies were developed exclusively by members of our brain injury survivor community, for example in our SABI Advocacy and Policy Forum and in survivor meetings in our community. These policies were developed without the direction or control of any other third party stakeholders such as service providers, attorneys, doctors or researchers. We are continuously formulating policy on topics of interest to our community.
These position statements have been approved by our Board of Directors. Our board is made up of individuals who have sustained acquired brain injuries (ABI's) from traumatic brain injury (TBI, head trauma, skull fracture, MTBI, diffuse brain injury, concussion); stroke; aneurysm; brain illness (Meningitis, Encephalitis); or anoxic or hypoxic brain injury; etc. We present here the kind of public policies we, the brain injury survivor community, would like to see encouraged, adopted or otherwise championed by the public (and private) sector. First the policy topics are listed in alphabetical order in an index. Under the index the actual policies are shown in the order in which they were approved by the Brain Injury Network Board of Directors.
