Military traumatic brain injury (TBI) case managers are an integral part of the care and support of service members with TBI. For service members with mild TBI and persistent post-concussive symptoms, ongoing therapy can be disrupted by frequent changes of duty station, multiple deployments, distance to care providers or separation from active duty to veteran status. The responsibility of military TBI case managers is to ensure ongoing care remains as consistent as possible.
DVBIC provides the following resources and online tools to assist military TBI case managers and care coordinators.

The TBI Recovery Support program offers TBI expertise, resources and support to the military and veterans’ communities and facilities connections across the entire continuum of recovery and spectrum of care.
The TBI Recovery Support Program offers support and access to TBI services and other resources for service members, guard and reservists, and veterans who have sustained a TBI, their family members and caregivers as they enter the rehabilitation stage of care, return to duty or transition to civilian life.
