The 3rd Inter-Urban Brain Injury Conference – “2001: An ABI Odyssey: The Beginning, the Voyage, The Destination” is being held in London this year on October 25th and 26, 2001. The conference will feature a broad range of symposia, workshops and papers addressing many of the contemporary and pressing concerns to brain injury survivors, their families and members of the health care profession. The Chairs of the conference have accepted a submission by Thomson, Rogers, Frank Martino of Rehabilitation Network Canada Inc. and Dr. John Flannery, Chief of Physiatry at St. John’s Rehabilitation Hospital.
Our presentation is entitled “Bill 59 Rehabilitation Funding Decision Models – Can we do Better?” It seeks to examine the effectiveness of the current Treatment Plan model in providing accident victims with timely access to recommended rehabilitation, based on an opinion survey of Health Care Professionals. This survey is found within this issue of the Accident Benefit Reporter.
We are requesting the assistance of our readers who are health care professionals to complete the enclosed survey and to share your experience with the current Bill 59 Treatment Plan model. We would be grateful if you would complete the questionnaire and return it to us in the enclosed postage paid envelope or by fax at 416-868-3134 no later than July 31, 2001.
Your opinions and recommendations are important. We hope that you will share them with us.
Thanks for your co-operation.
