“It’s All NEUROpathophysiology” Understanding Brain Function After Injury

 

Course Description: This session will provide an in-depth discussion on the anatomical structures of the brain, the cognitive and communicative functions of the structures, the neuropathophysiological outcomes associated with traumatic brain injury, and how brain damage impacts cognition, communication, and overall functioning. Neuroplasticity will also be discussed as related to recovery and compensation.

Audience: The course is appropriate for professionals and graduate students in allied health (SLP, PT/PTA, OT/OTA, nursing), psychology, medicine, special education, and social work and who work with persons who have an acquired brain injury.

Learner Outcomes:

  1. Identify the neuroanatomy of the healthy brain and its functions as related to cognition and communication.

  2. Describe the neuropathophysiology of brain function following traumatic brain injury.

  3. Explain how primary and secondary brain damage impacts cognition, communication, and overall functioning.

  4. Explain neuroplasticity within the behavioral and neurophysiological aspects of recovery and compensation.

 

“Keeping it Real” in Concussion Assessment: Connecting Symptoms to Function

Course Description: This session will provide learners with knowledge of the physical, psychosocial, and cognitive-communicative symptoms of mild TBI/concussion, the impact of symptom overlap on functional performance, and methods for applying the ICF model the assessment and plan of care for persons with mTBI/concussion.

Audience: The course is appropriate for professionals and graduate students in allied health (SLP, PT/PTA, OT/OTA, nursing), psychology, medicine, special education, and social work and who work with persons who have an acquired brain injury.

Learner Outcomes: At the end of this course, attendees will be able:

  1. Describe the physical, psychosocial, and cognitive-communicative symptoms of mild TBI/concussion.

  2. Discuss symptom overlap and the impact on functional performance in academic, vocational, and social settings.

"Mama Said Knock You Out!" Combat sports, Concussions, & Cognition

Course Description: This session will focus on mTBI/concussion and disability among boxers, mixed martial arts, and other combat-sport athletes. Through case studies, the unique mechanics and neuropathophysiology of brain injury associated with combat sports will be discussed. The challenges that exist for this population including barriers to care and disparities in care will also be discussed.

Audience: The course is appropriate for professionals and students in allied health (SLP, PT/PTA, OT/OTA, nursing), psychology, medicine, special education, and social work and who work with persons who have an acquired brain injury.

Learner Outcomes: At the end of this course, attendees will be able:

  1. List the incidence and prevalence of mTBI/concussion and disability in combat sports such as boxing and mixed martial arts.

  2. Describe the unique mechanics and neuropathophysiology of mTBI/concussion in combat sports.

  3. Discuss the challenges for persons who participate in combat sports including barriers to care and health disparities.

Requirements for Course Completion: For satisfactory completion of this course, participants must attend the entire session(s) and the feedback survey.
