Lived Experience Video Presentations

The application period for 2023 is now closed. Thank you for your submissions.

Brain Injury Canada is holding a virtual conference on May 17 & 18 for healthcare and health service providers.  Our goal with this conference is to provide practical education on a variety of topics to better inform and improve their delivery and service and care. 

Who better to contribute to this education than persons living with brain injury or a caregiver/family member?

We are looking for individuals interested in recording a 10-minute presentation to be included on the conference virtual platform. Presentations should have a clear structure, and an accompanying slide presentation is preferred. We want this to be a positive and engaging learning experience for all so presentations should be constructive in nature.

Presentations can include any or all of the following:

  • What can you share that has changed/ helped your life?
  • What strategies helped you in your recovery or that of a love one ?
  • What do you think healthcare providers need to know to better support their clients/patients and their families?
  • What have been the most challenging part of living with brain injury?
  • What do you have to say to inspire attendees in their work?

While every person’s story is worthy of sharing, we are only able to select a limited number of videos. Individuals selected to record will be provided with a $50 honourarium for their contribution. Selections will be made in December, with video filming starting in January 2023.
