Understanding the Relationship Between Mild TBI and Post-deployment Health Concerns: Evidence, Clinical Implications and Treatment
Date/Time: March 27, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) or concussion has been identified as an important injury of the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts. Controversy exists regarding the relationship between mTBI and other health conditions resulting from service in a war zone. The goal of this webinar is to share current research and treatment practices related to post-deployment symptoms, including those attributed to mTBI. This pragmatic discussion will include the perspectives of one of the Defense Department’s most cited mental health researchers as well as a specialty care provider on ways to manage service members and veterans with combat-related injuries.
You are invited to the DCoE March 2014 webinar titled, Understanding the Relationship Between Mild TBI and Post-deployment Health Concerns: Evidence, Clinical Implications and Treatment. We look forward to your participation on Thursday, March 27, 2014 from 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT). Below are the event details and instructions for participating.
- Identify evidence regarding the etiology and management of post-concussion and post-deployment health problems
- Examine the complex relationship between mTBI and post-deployment health concerns
- Evaluate clinical approaches to the management of service members and veterans with post-deployment/post-concussion complaints
