The Brain Injury ECHO for individuals with brain injury and family members is a free virtual learning environment in which a panel (i.e. hub) of Advocates and Providers share their knowledge through presentations and Q&A sessions. Our rotating panel includes individuals with a brain injury, family members, a Licensed Professional Counselor who is a Certified Brain Injury Specialist, a Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Long Term Care Ombudsman, and a Case Manager. The first half-hour of each ECHO session is a presentation on brain injury topics (e.g. daily living tips, journey to recovery, coping with fatigue) followed by questions. The remaining hour is for discussing key questions. Key questions are submitted and often presented by participants. Here participants explain a current concern or experience they are having. After, both participants and the hub team have the opportunity to participate in the discussion and offer recommendations.
The 10 sessions will be held every Monday at 11am to 12:30pm (Alaska time) from October 19 to December 21.
Please note, sessions are recorded. Afterwards the presentation portion is made available to individuals who have registered on this ECHO. The key questions section is not shared out.
We ask that attendees adhere to the following group guidelines and by registering for the ECHO you agree to the following:
• Only share what you are comfortable sharing. Share your experiences and not the experiences of others.
• What is discussed during key questions is not shared or discussed with others outside of this ECHO.
• Keep questions and comments on topic.
• Be considerate of others.
• Use language that is respectful.
