Description: TBI results in an abrupt disruption to the functioning of the brain, with the potential to impact any or all of our mental and physical functions. The complex impairments, functional limitations and activity restrictions that the individual experiences can pose considerable challenges for clinicians from the acute through the chronic phases. This 2-day course will provide a framework and utilize video-based cases to provide optimal evaluation, assessment, and treatment strategies for individuals with moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries. Best practices and the integration of existing evidence into clinical reasoning, along with strategies for reflection to drive professional growth, will be emphasized. This will facilitate efficient and effective decision-making by the clinician to optimize outcomes for individuals with moderate to severe TBI. Objectives: Following this course, participants will report increased confidence in their ability to: • Perform a comprehensive examination of an individual with moderate or severe TBI, including assessment of physical, cognitive, behavioral, and psychosocial variables. • Integrate multiple sources of information to anticipate areas of deficits to help guide examination, goal setting and prognosticating • Develop a patient-centered plan of care that prioritizes addressing impairments linked to activity and participation restrictions, considering co-morbidities, acuity of injury, resources, and personal factors. • Implement evidence-based and theory-based interventions that will comprehensively address the needs of the individual patient. • Utilize reflective strategies throughout the clinical reasoning process to foster professional growth and continue to drive one’s own expertise.
