CTRC and Brain Injury Canada releases position paper on moderate to severe TBI

The Canadian Traumatic Brain Injury Research Consortium (CTRC) and Brain Injury Canada just released a national report on the need to recognize moderate to severe TBI as a chronic condition. The report sheds light on the gravity of severe TBI in Canada, the leading cause of death and disability among Canadians under 40. Brain-injured individuals can lose their identity, relationships, jobs, financial and emotional security, and independence-- if they survive. The report calls on the Canadian government and its healthcare system to allocate responsive programming and resources for Canadians with debilitating TBI over their lifetime.
