Public Policy of the Brain Injury Network
Policy approved by the Board 6-13-2011
Abuse, Exploitation, Manipulation and Victimization of People with Brain Injury
Just as there is elder abuse, there is what we call “Abuse of People with Acquired Brain Injury”. Many people with acquired brain injuries are taken advantage of by unethical persons who use deception and trickery to get the upper hand over trusting, desperate survivors of brain injury. Ineffective sham preparations and treatments are sold to survivors. We can ill afford to spend our few discretionary dollars on unproven products and treatments.
