Intended Audience and Scope of Practice:

This CE (continuing education) activity is intended for nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, social workers, therapists, researchers working in the field of brain injury, and other interested members of the healthcare team.

Statement of Need and Purpose:

The Center for Disease Control estimates that 2.5 million Americans experience a brain injury each year. Mild traumatic brain injury is one of the most common neurological disorders. Brain injury research continually generates evidence leading to new insights, and treatment and management options, creating a practice gap among healthcare professionals.

Elements of Competence:

This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialities areas of medical knowledge, Institute of Medicine areas of patient-centered care and evidence-based medicine, and the Interprofessional and Nursing area of interprofessional communication.

Learning Objectives:

Following this conference, learners will be able to:

  • Explain treatment options available to people affect by brain injury, how to access them, and make the best use of them.
  • Apply best practices to their clinical practice.
  • Describe the lifelong challenges that affect a person with a brain injury.
