In 1990 the Ohio General Assembly created the Ohio Brain Injury Program (BIP) and Ohio Brain Injury Advisory Committee (BIAC) to address the needs of Ohioans living with the effects of brain injury.  We are now embarking on a new strategic planning process that will guide the work of the BIAC & BIP from 2020 to 2025. The creation of the plan will be undertaken via a 5-step, iterative process for generating objectives under the 4 over-arching goals of the program. This web-based survey is the second step and is intended to elicit feedback from the Ohio brain injury community on the importance of possible objectives. Please provide your impression of the importance for ALL the objectives listed. Thank you for your time and input on this important project for Ohioans with brain injury and their families.
