Champlain System Navigation for Acquired Brain Injury (ABI ) As the single point of access to ABI services across the region, the ABI System Navigator will identify opportunities for collaboration among ABI and non-ABI service providers including: mental health, addictions, developmentally delayed, geriatrics, corrections and housing.
Our aim is to help individuals and their families access essential services tailored to their specific needs. Our ultimate goal…. to create a better future for individuals with brain injury and their families.
The concept of system navigation in acquired brain injury was developed after a 2004 report identified gaps in the coordination of ABI services. As a result, it was proposed that a strategy of service coordination at the local level be developed. ABI Services are now available in Cornwall and Renfrew.
System navigation programs have also been unveiled in many other sectors, including mental health, addictions, and developmental services. In 2011 this became a reality in the Champlain LHIN. In the fall of 2011 a System Navigator was hired to facilitate these linkages within the system, both between local service providers and across the province.
