The Iowa Department of Public Health and the Governor’s Advisory Council on Brain Injuries are pleased to announce a new Community of Practice (CoP) on Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This goal of the CoP is to develop community collaboration and improve participants’ knowledge of, and ability to, implement best and promising practices for increasing access to brain injury services across the state of Iowa.
The Iowa TBI Community of Practice is an opportunity for sharing ideas, discussing issues, and generating solutions for individuals who advocate for, work with, and support Iowans affected by brain injury.
This CoP will explore methods for increasing access to brain injury services and supports through strategies, programs and policies or legislation related to:
o Screening of individuals who are at high risk for brain injury (e.g. incarcerated individuals, including juvenile detainees; individuals harmed by domestic violence; the elderly; athletes of all ages)
o Development of local supports
o Policy development
o Information and referral services
o Developing effective advocates
