Brain Injury Speaks Releases Final Report on Identity Change After ABI
In December of 2021, the Brain Injury Speaks Stakeholder Engagement Network of Ontario (with the Ontario Brain Injury Association) further explored the topic of Identity Change After ABI. Virtual focus groups with individuals who have sustained brain injuries were conducted. The purpose of these groups was to better understand experiences of identity change following brain injury and how it may impact different aspects of their lives.
