Course Description

The brain injury rehabilitation continuum is based on adapting treatment to the major impairments at each stage, and preparing the individual for the next stage of recovery. Best practices exist at every stage in the continuum that contribute to functional recovery and a positive outcome. This course is designed to review the brain injury continuum of care and highlight best practices at each component in the continuum that promotes recovery and restoration of function.

  1. List at least three signs/symptoms of a brain injury
  2. Describe the treatment continuum for brain injury
