2014 Traumatic Brain Injury Global Synapse - On-Demand
On-Demand: Sept. 8-30
More than 300,000 service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI) since 2000, according to the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC). TBIs sustained during combat not only affect the health and safety of individual service members, but also the level of unit readiness and troop retention; yet, the vast majority of service members and veterans sustain these injuries in a non-deployed setting because of the strenuous nature of their training or participation in competitive sports, vehicle collisions and daring recreational activities.
The 2014 TBI Global Synapse is geared toward multidisciplinary health care providers in military treatment facilities and clinics, complex polytrauma centers and community-based Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities. The training will focus on how to deliver evidence-based care that is timely, thorough, compassionate and appropriate to each patient and family.
Sessions will address best practices in TBI assessment; diagnosis and treatment; innovative approaches to multidisciplinary care; management of comorbidities, including psychological health conditions; and successful reintegration strategies.
