Each time you work with an individual with traumatic brain injury it is a unique experience depending on that individual’s presentation. Due to the complexity of the many conditions that may present it is not possible to prescribe specifically how to treat individuals with traumatic brain injury. However you can use the resources in this course to inform your clinical reasoning and practice to develop an individualised management plan specifically for that individual. This course will also examine the different phases of the management of individuals with traumatic brain injury and review existing best practice guidelines.
This course aims to ensure comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the role of clinical guidelines for the treatment and management of traumatic brain injury as well as review current best practice guidelines through each of the stages of traumatic brain injury management.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
- Multidisciplinary / Interdisciplinary Team and the Role of the Physiotherapist
- Clinical Guidelines in Traumatic Brain Injury Management
- Principles of Physiotherapy Management of Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury
- Discharge Management
- Special Considerations in the Management of Traumatic Brain Injury
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.
