The Role of Sleep, Activity, and Nutrition in the Treatment and Recovery of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

DCoE Webinar Series (TBI): January 2015
 

Date/Time: January 8, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (EST)
 

In 2013, Lt. Gen. Patricia D. Horoho, the U.S. Army surgeon general, launched an organizational initiative to improve the health, readiness, and resilience of the Army family. The performance triad is a comprehensive plan to promote the balance of sleep, activity, and nutrition among Army family members to improve health and wellness. The three key components of the performance triad represent sleep, activity, and nutrition that we understand to affect the cognitive and physical performance of service members. 

The performance triad can assist TBI patients in creating a system of healthy behaviors. The three components of the performance triad are instrumental in the recovery process for service members with a TBI, particularly those with persistent symptoms and chronic injury.

Discussion will include the initial pathophysiology of brain injury, in relation to combat-related injuries and the physiology of stress relative to neural function.  Evidence supports that chronic injury is the most complex of difficulties across the continuum of care from diagnosis to treatment and to recovery.  Research studies indicate the integration of the performance triad of sleep, activity, and nutrition may serve to mitigate the effects of stress and even potentially promote positive neuroplasticity for recovery.
 


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Discuss the critical role of sleep, activity, and nutrition in brain health and recovery
  • Examine current evidence based treatment practices associated with recovery care
  • Evaluate how sleep, activity and nutrition impact recovery care practices
