CHARLOTTETOWN - The Brain Injury Association of Prince Edward Island is looking to compile statistics to guide the future development of support services for those living with a brain injury.
“We have been looking into the lack of services for brain injury survivors and their family for a number of years,” said Kenneth Murnaghan, president of the Brain Injury Association. “One of the biggest stumbling blocks is the lack of statistics pertaining to the number of brain injury survivors on P.E.I. With the help of a U.P.E.I. student we have created a survey to distribute Island wide.”
He said it is important to get a clear picture of brain injuries on P.E.I. what the needs are and what services are needed to best meet the survivors needs.
