Course Description

Author:    Raymond M. Lengel (ARNP)

This course is directed at practicing nurses to assist them when caring for the patient with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The course will provide a general overview of TBI. The incidence, risk factors, causes, treatment options and prevention will be discussed. The course will also discuss sports-related concussion including its assessment, management and long-term complications.

Occupational Therapists and assistants will benefit from this course as each frequently works with geriatric and pediatric clients that may have sustained a TBI due to a fall or sports injury. This course provides EBP tips from the evaluation of concussion thru the use of assessments appropriate for all disciplines, identification of risk factors, causes, treatment options, prevention and the long-term effects of TBI.

OTAs and PTAs will benefit from this course in understanding the theory and components of the evaluation process as well as following through with the treatment plan designed by the therapist.
