While athletes make up a large number of concussion cases, brain injuries are increasing in the workforce. Concussions experienced on the job are typically caused by slips, falls, or hits to the head by falling objects at work. They are a common issue that has been causing injury to workers since the beginning of time, but the growing awareness of brain injuries in the past few years have made many labor and human resources communities increase education about the injuries. Bancroft NeuroRehab is pleased to present a two-part webinar series on post-concussion management. The first program will cover the screening, evaluation, and use of a neuropsychological evaluation in the treatment of concussion.
After this 60-minute webinar you will be able to:
- Define concussion, including prevalence and pathophysiology
- Describe the symptoms commonly endorsed following a concussion
- Develop a basic understanding of concussion recovery and possible barriers
- Understand the benefit of the Neuropsychological Evaluation in treatment and recovery following a concussion
