TBI results in an abrupt disruption to the functioning of the brain, with the potential to impact any or all 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 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.
