DCoE Webinar Series (TBI): March 2014
Progressive Return to Activity Following Acute Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: Guidance for the Primary Care Manager and Rehabilitation Provider
Date/Time: March 13, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
Consensus panels have increasingly recommended a gradual return to normal activity using a graded protocol after a concussion. In January 2014, the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center released two companion clinical recommendations to facilitate a standardized, staged return to unrestricted activity for service members who have sustained concussion in deployed and non-deployed settings.
The “Progressive Return to Activity Following Acute Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: Guidance for the Primary Care Manager and the Rehabilitation Provider in Deployed and Non-deployed Setting” resource suite was developed in collaboration with military, clinical and academic subject matter experts. It addresses the six stages of progression from rest to pre-injury activity; definition of rest; use of the Neurobehavioral Symptom Inventory to track symptoms; a two-tiered complementary approach based upon symptoms and provider judgment; physical, cognitive and vestibular/balance activities recommended for participation and activities to avoid at each stage; and guidelines for progression, regression and referral. This webinar will introduce these key stages delineated by the clinical recommendations.
You are invited to the DCoE March 2014 webinar titled, Progressive Return to Activity Following Acute Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: Guidance for the Primary Care Manager and Rehabilitation Provider. We look forward to your participation on Thursday, March 13, 2014 from 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT). Below are the event details and instructions for participating.
