Every year thousands of Canadian women experience intimate partner violence, potentially causing disabling permanent traumatic brain injuries. This connection, and its implications, is still left largely unexplored. How can we improve care and services for those affected?
Nanaimo Brain Injury Society, in partnership with Haven Society, Society for Equity, Inclusion and Advocacy, Nanaimo Family Life Association, and Island Health, are bringing together front-line workers, people with lived experience, service providers, and the public to understand the intersection of intimate partner violence and brain injury. Through presentations, workshops, and discussion you’ll learn about current research, tools and resources, and future directions for support services from leading experts in the field (Presenters from University of Toronto and University of British Columbia). Lunch will be provided.
