#7236 Concussion Care in Medical Rehabilitation - Three Part Series

 

Part One: Concussion or mild Traumatic Brain Injury is a serious public health concern. In the course, designed for physical, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, and audiologists, foundational concepts of concussion and its acute management are discussed in detail. Concussion management requires a multi-disciplinary team approach due the effect of many facets of the brain. Speech language pathologists (SLP) and Audiologists (AUD) are critical members of the concussion team. After attending the course, participants will be able to identify current evidenced-based recommendations from recognized Clinical Practice Guidelines. Course attendees will be able describe in detail the definition, epidemiology, pathophysiology, and mechanisms of injury of concussions. Acute management principles, including reasons for referral are detailed, and the course participant will be able to identify and list these. The course participants will be able to demonstrate comprehension of return to play guidelines and factors affecting prognosis.(Intermediate Level)

 

Part Two: This course is designed for physical, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, and audiologists. Concussion management requires a multi-disciplinary team approach due the effect of many facets of the brain. Speech language pathologists (SLP) and Audiologists (AUD) are critical members of the concussion team. Concussions cause extremely diverse impairments and functional limitations. Patients who have had mTBI or concussion should thus be managed according to their unique presentations of signs and symptoms. Clinical researchers have developed a model with clinical subtypes in an effort to improve assessment and thus treatment of patients. In this course, these unique clinical profiles are discussed in depth. The course provided an introduction to elements of the concussion examination with these five primary profiles in mind. The interplay of the profiles and the interaction of other factors such as sleep and cervical dysfunction are described. After attending this course, participants will be able to describe methods to delineated the clinical profiles or subtypes presentations. The course participants can demonstrate the ability to make decisions on evaluation and treatment guidelines. (Intermediate Level)

 

Part Three: This course is designed for physical, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, and audiologists. Concussion management requires a multi-disciplinary team approach due the effect of many facets of the brain. Speech language pathologists (SLP) and Audiologists (AUD) are critical members of the concussion team. The vestibular and oculomotor systems are frequently affected after a concussion. The possible impairments may include dizziness, blurry vision, headache, disequilibrium, cognition and hearing impairment. As a result, there may be difficulty with a variety of functional tasks including reading, walking, and balance. This instructional module covered various assessments and tests of the vestibular, oculomotor, and balance systems and the interpretation of the potential findings. Basic treatment principles are introduced. The course participant is now able to select and administer specific vestibular concussion tests. (Intermediate Level)
