To promote the best possible care for service members, veterans and their families, DVBIC offers a variety of training opportunities for military and civilian health care providers on the causes, symptoms and treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI). These training opportunities are free and many provide health care professionals the chance to earn continuing education credits.
Here’s a list of training opportunities available.
DVBIC, in collaboration with Defense Health Agency (DHA) Continuing Education Program Office, hosted educational webinars from November, 2012 to March, 2018 to provide information and facilitate discussion on a variety of topics related to traumatic brain injury (TBI). The webinars are targeted to health care providers, and are appropriate for other audiences. Presentations, transcripts and resources from past webinars are archived and available via the Webinars page.
DVBIC podcasts aim to provide information to health care providers, service members, veterans, and their families on all aspects of mild-to-severe TBI. The TBI Family podcast series offers resources and tips for caregivers of TBI patients. Clinical Updates in Brain Injury Science Today (CUBIST) podcast series provides a brief analysis of current TBI research relevant to patient care. Listen to the latest episodes and subscribe to The TBI Family and CUBIST wherever you listen to podcasts.
VA/DVBIC TBI Clinical Grand Rounds
New Department of Veterans Affairs and DVBIC TBI Clinical Grand Rounds presentations are discontinued effective January 2017. Archived Grand Rounds presentations (quarterly lectures presented by Department of Veterans Affairs and DVBIC subject matter experts designed for providers) will remain available for viewing, but continuing education credit will no longer be available.
On an annual basis, DVBIC brings together experts and leading voices in all aspects of the treatment of TBI in the military to share the latest news and resources. Most events are hybrid — combining a live in-person event with a virtual component. Slide presentations, and video and audio recordings from these events are available on the website.
