Introduction

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.
