CEU Course Description

Approximately 1.5 million Americans survive a traumatic brain injury each year. The leading causes are falls, motor vehicle accidents, struck by/against events and assaults. The incidence has significantly increased as a result of recent military and combat operations. Due to this increase, the Veterans Health Administration created a Clinical Practice Guideline to ensure that patients are screened and identified and receive appropriate treatment. This course provides clinicians that work with mild traumatic brain injury patients a structured framework to help improve patient outcomes.
