In this webinar, brain injury survivors, caregivers and others with the lived experience of disability will learn ways to be successful when participating in team projects. Project leaders will learn what works and doesn’t work when engaging people with the lived experience of brain injury.
The content of this webinar is based on brain injury survivors’ experiences in the National Center on Advancing Person-Centered Practices and Systems (NCAPPS) Brain Injury Learning Collaborative from January 2020 to August 2021. During this time, teams in 15 states worked toward aims to make brain injury services more person-centered.
Each team included members with the lived experience of brain injury. In addition, the Learning Collaborative included three faculty members who were brain injury survivors and experienced advocates.
The three faculty members and lived experience advisors created a vibrant community of advocates within the Learning Collaborative. This community positively impacted not only the individuals involved, but also their teams, the Collaborative, and the larger brain injury community, serving as a model for successful survivor engagement.
