This FREE, 4-week on-demand course offers 11.25 CME/CE credits and provides a comprehensive overview of diagnostic criteria, assessment techniques, recovery patterns, and rehabilitation strategies for traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
Course faculty begin with a focus on foundational knowledge about TBI, such as the spectrum of TBI severity, anticipated outcomes between mild versus severe TBI, and criteria for diagnosis and management of TBI from onset through the acute recovery stage. Topics then progress to address common clinical challenges associated with TBI, such as:
Recognizing similarities and differences in recovery among athletes, civilians and active-duty service members
Differentiating typical from atypical recovery patterns
Selecting treatment and rehabilitation strategies for veterans with mild TBI and ongoing problems with mental health and chronic pain
Our goal is to help you translate knowledge into enhanced clinical practice that provides better outcomes for patients, so the course includes live interaction with faculty at set times each week to address clinical questions and discuss course materials. Course content is 100% mobile-friendly and completely on-demand, so you can participate whenever your schedule allows.
Presenters for this course include:
Grant L. Iverson, PhD, Course Director
Timothy J. Petersen, PhD
Lenore Herget, PT, DPT, MEd
Nicholas A. Tritos, MD, DSc
Ross D. Zafonte, DO
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
Describe the spectrum of traumatic brain injury severity.
Explain the differences in anticipated outcomes between those with mild versus severe TBI.
Explain the criteria for diagnosing a mild traumatic brain injury and the recommendations for how to manage the injury in the acute recovery stage.
Recognize the similarities and differences in recovery trajectories among athletes, civilians, and active duty service members.
Differentiate typical from atypical recovery patterns.
Describe the differential diagnoses for the post-concussion syndrome.
Demonstrate an understanding of treatment and rehabilitation strategies for veterans who have a history of mild TBI and ongoing problems with mental health and chronic pain.
