DVBIC develops practical, easy-to-use clinical tools to support military and civilian health care providers in assessing and treating service members and veterans who have sustained a TBI. Providers can access clinically-relevant information and resources that address common symptoms associated with mild TBI, such as dizziness, sleep disturbances and vision problems. The clinical tools include clinical recommendations, support tools, training slides, fact sheets and brochures. Check out our Clinical Tools.
DVBIC offers a variety of educational information and resources to help patients and their families learn about mild, moderate, severe or penetrating TBI. The topics covered include signs and symptoms, coping and recovery, and prevention.
