Concussions/Mild TBIs: Early Intervention to Achieve the Best Outcomes
Concussions—or mild traumatic brain injuries—can be extremely challenging to diagnose and treat due to variability in symptoms, inadequate treatment, and other factors, such as medical, psychosocial, and environmental. They can also delay or limit recovery from other work-related injuries, impacting functional independence and return to work efforts.
In this webinar, our Paradigm clinical experts talk about how proactive management, including early intervention, appropriate provider identification, and evidence-based treatment approaches can mitigate the long-term disability and financial impact of these injuries. We discuss clarifying the diagnosis, facilitating appropriate medical, psychological, and rehabilitative care and follow up, and driving to functional outcomes through a systematic, biopsychosocial model.
Leading the discussion is Dr. Elizabeth Sandel, one of the nation’s foremost experts in brain injuries and a board certified physician in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Brain Injury Medicine. Dr. Sandel is the author of “Shaken Brain: The Science, Care, and Treatment of Concussion” (Harvard University Press, 2020). Dr. Sandel is joined by Dr. Deborah Benson, a board certified rehabilitation psychologist and co-editor of “Acquired Brain Injury: An Integrative Neuro-Rehabilitation Approach” (Springer, 2007).
