Last updated: November 5, 2020
Project Number: ES0339-000
Product Line: Environmental Scans
Result type: Report
Expected Completion Date: October 16, 2020
CADTH is undertaking an Environmental Scan of systems and services that are in place in Canada for caring for individuals affected by acquired brain injury (ABI) and concurrent mental health and/or substance use issues. This project is being conducted to help inform decision-making and support practice change to improve the health and well-being of people living with ABI and concurrent mental health and/or substance use issues. 
 
The key objectives of this Environmental Scan are to:
  • identify and describe the systems that are in place to manage the care of individuals with ABI and concurrent mental health and/or substance use issues
  • identify and describe integrated patient-centred care centres implemented in Canada for patients with ABI and concurrent mental health and/or substance use issues
  • identify and describe systems and integrated patient-care centres currently operating in Canada that are based on Indigenous practices of managing the care of individuals with ABI and concurrent mental health and/or substance use issues.
