Understanding Behavioral Health Conditions Resulting from TBI
Nov. 9, 2017; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)
Patients with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) may also experience psychological health concerns including posttraumatic stress, depression and anxiety. Because symptoms of TBI and psychological health problems can be similar, knowing when to refer a patient to another provider is important for effective treatment.
The goal of this webinar is to highlight psychological health conditions associated with TBI and the roles of other health care providers. The presenter will share diverse case studies to explain psychiatric assessment, treatment and prognosis with relevance to military medicine.
Participants will learn to:
- Describe common psychological health conditions resulting from, or associated with, traumatic brain injuries.
- Understand the roles of psychiatrists, psychologists and other psychotherapists and when to refer patients to an appropriate specialist.
- Recognize common treatments for patients with TBI, including benefits and risks.
