Workshop session: Active Rehabilitation for Slow to Recover Concussion
The learning objectives are:
- To appreciate the limitations of “watchful waiting” in patients with mild Traumatic Brain Injury (TBIs).
- To encourage active rehabilitation for athletes, workers, and military service members who are slow to recover following head trauma.
- To recognize the special treatment and rehabilitation needs of workers who sustain mild TBIs and multiple bodily injuries.
