Traumatic Brain Injury: Maximizing Functional Outcomes
The long term functional consequences of mild and moderate traumatic brain injury have become evident in recent years due to the signature wound of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the press around sports related concussion. This course focuses on evidence-based rehabilitation strategies for survivors of mild and moderate traumatic brain injury. Content will emphasize activity engagement and participation outcome measures through evaluation and treatment of vulnerabilities frequently associated with TBI; sensory processing disorders, mobility impairments, behavioral health issues, and higher-level cognitive functioning deficits. Through case analysis course participants will learn the most current rehabilitation strategies for this population. Upon completion, participants will be prepared to implement established assessment techniques and develop effective treatment strategies designed to maximize functional outcomes for survivors of mild and moderate traumatic brain injury across the continuum of care across the life span.
