This course will focus on developing an understanding of Traumatic Brain Injury; what it is, what causes it, how often it occurs, what you might expect to see, the impacts it has on movement and function, and what other associated conditions may occur. We need to be able to answer these questions in order to understand our role as physiotherapists in the management of traumatic brain injury.
The aim of this course is to provide knowledge of neuroanatomy and traumatic brain injury clinical presentations, and to explore both local and global prevalence of this condition.
This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
- Brain Anatomy and Pathophysiology of Traumatic Brain Injury
- Epidemiology, Incidence and Global Burden of Traumatic Brain Injury
- Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury
- Associated Conditions and Medical Complications
This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
