Next up – Concussion: Presentation, Pathophysiology, Evaluation & Clinical Implications
Wednesday, November 18, 12:00-1:00 pm
Concussion may be described as a mild traumatic brain injury, but it can be anything but mild. It can cause long-lasting physical, cognitive and emotional challenges, and can even hinder an individual’s return to work, school or sports. Through education on concussion management and treatment, rehabilitation professionals can help their clients maximize their recovery.
- 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
Jeremy Schwarzbaum, PsyD
The 1-hour presentation will include 1.0 CEU credit for CCMC, CRC and NASW-NJ.
