BIAA-TX, Texas Brain Injury Advisory Council Work Toward Family Navigator Pilot Program
April 27, 2018
The Brain Injury Association of America – Texas Division (BIAA-TX) and the Texas Brain Injury Advisory Council (TBIAC) are working together to conceptualize and launch a pilot program to provide resource facilitation to the thousands of families facing the consequences of brain injury in the lone star state. At its core, the Family Navigator Pilot Study will evaluate the effectiveness of resource facilitation via trained family navigators to assist families and individuals with brain injury throughout the recovery process and towards independence.
“The Texas Brain Injury Advisory Council – comprised of individuals with brain injury, family caregivers, and clinicians from every corner of the state – has made recommendations to the legislature over the last two decades directly resulting in increased access to care and services for Texans with acquired brain injury,” commented the Texas Division’s Will Dane. “The Brain Injury Association of America – Texas Division is proud to be part of this conversation and looks forward to working with the Advisory Council to move the needle further forward for Texans facing brain injury.”
The Texas Division will announce further updates in the coming weeks.
