This 19.5 hour comprehensive, competency-based, workshop will provide attendees with a thorough overview of all aspects of concussion identification, assessment, and rehabilitation intervention that focuses on the six types of concussion trajectories (vestibular, ocular, mood and anxiety, post-traumatic migraine, chronic/fatigue, and cervical) incorporating hands-on lab activities. Following a concussion (mTBI), the implications on cognitive function, school performance, and mental state can be detrimental to any individual, interfering with school, work, and daily activities. The course will address anatomy & physiology of the brain, acute and sub-acute assessment techniques and tools, standard of care rehabilitation interventions, the role of exercise post-concussion, concerns related to mental health, and return to work, school and sport strategies. An online examination will follow to complete the certification process.
