CEU Course Description
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of disability with post-traumatic headache being one of the most prevalent and long-lasting post-concussion sequelae, causing significant morbidity, and may also be associated with slower neurocognitive recovery. The goal of this CEU course is to evaluate the use of concussion screening scores in a concussion clinic population to assess for post-traumatic headache.
CEU Course Objectives
1. Conclude how a prior history of headache and/or concussions are associated with the prevalence and intensity of posttraumatic headaches.
2. Explain why the SCAT-3 symptom scores might be a useful tool for neurologists and headache specialists.
3. List four primary causes of traumatic brain injury in patients seen in the Emergency Department.
4. Summarize which demographic a prior study on concussion assessment in an outpatient heterogenous population showed to be associated with worse SCAT-3 symptom scores.
