Navigating Your Recovery Journey
Part 4: Being Active in Your Own Recovery
What is this video about?
The BC Brain Injury Association (BCBIA) has created a series of short videos (6-11 minutes each) that highlight scenarios that we think are important for individuals and families to have information about, as they navigate ICBC’s Accident Benefit Coverage system.
When ICBC introduced changes to its Accident Benefits Coverage in April, 2019, we knew that many people would have questions, particularly if they had suffered a brain injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident. We started out by creating a series of blog posts intended to help provide information to our stakeholders about the claims process.
The entire video series contains some information specific to the ICBC changes (especially the first video), but much of it is also relevant to all brain injury survivors, as we cover important topics such as this one here.
This the fourth video speaks to the many ways that survivors can be active in their own recovery and features interviews with a brain injury survivor of a serious motorcycle accident in 2016 and his and spouse/caregiver, a family doctor, and a Recreation Therapist/BCBIA board member.
What questions does this video answer?
- What can you do to be active in your own recovery?
