Combat-Related TBI (v2)

Course overview

Individuals who have post-concussive syndrome or symptoms that occur after traumatic brain injury often have problems with functions such as: attention, judgment, memory, the ability to coordinate activities, and effective cooperation.

EMS personnel should have a foundational understanding of what TBI is and the ongoing needs of people living with one or more cognitive, emotional, or behavioral disabilities.
