Diagnosis and Management of Post-traumatic Headache


 

DCoE Webinar Series (TBI): May 2014
 

Date/Time: May 8, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

Headache is one of the most common persisting symptoms after traumatic brain injury (TBI) across all levels of injury severity. Recent research in both civilian and military sample populations has improved the understanding of the prevalence and pathogenesis of the problem after TBI. However, little research has yet to be conducted on treatments for post-traumatic headache. This webinar will review the current research on post-traumatic headache and how symptoms of headache can assist with diagnosis. Current recommendations for treatment of post-traumatic headache also will be described.

You are invited to the DCoE Webinar Series (TBI): May 2014 titled, Diagnosis and Management of Post-traumatic Headache.  We look forward to your participation on Thursday, May 8, 2014 from 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT).  Below are the event details and instructions for participating.
