Brain Injuries: Employing Evidence-based Advances to Improve Evaluation and Outcomes

Brain Injuries luncheon

Brain injury is often referred to as a “silent epidemic,” as it is not well understood by the general public nor by many healthcare professionals. Often, people with a brain injury have not been properly diagnosed, and have not received treatment essential to healing. As a result, individuals are overmedicalized, with a corresponding increase in disability, with costs and lost productivity estimated at $76.5 billion annually. This panel presentation will demonstrate how advanced biopsychosocial systems are employed to dramatically improve diagnosis, treatment, accelerate MMI and decrease overall costs.

Program Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn how advanced diagnostic methods are employed to diagnose whether or not a brain injury occurred.
  • Learn how to identify the best type of treatment to improve outcomes.
  • Understand how transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary treatment and case management with stakeholders can accelerate MMI/P&S and decrease overall costs.

Panelists:

Dr. Clark Smith, MD, DFAPA – Chief Medical Officer | Institutes of Health
Dr. Crystal Cobos, DPT, CBIS – Director, Head Injury & Concussion Clinic | Institutes of Health
