People in the community often find it difficult to understand brain injury because its effects are so varied and they are not easy to describe
A major role of BIAT is to promote community awareness and understanding of acquired brain injury, in terms of both prevention and the impact of ABI on the lives of individuals, families and the broader community.
The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania is able to provide training to people with an acquired brain injury, families, carers, employment agencies, health professionals, service providers, and schools. This is part of BIATs commitment to raise awareness of the challenges involved in brain injury and the healthcare questions it raises. Training programmes can be customised to suit the needs of organisations and individuals.
