This workshop will combine the provision of information regarding cutting edge, practical and readily available assessment and treatment resources with opportunities for discussion about cases, service delivery challenges, interdisciplinary care and the use of technology in traumatic brain injury rehabilitation.
Upon successful completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Use novel assessment approaches for people with traumatic brain injury and their families
• Design assessments that focus on the person with TBI’s ability to produce meaningful discourse and engage in everyday activities
• Use goal attainment scaling as a measure of treatment outcome
• Design group treatments which focus on improving cognitive communication outcomes
• Deliver evidence based treatment approaches for cognitive communication disability following TBI
• Engage and use practice based guidelines to inform management of cognitive communication disorders in people with traumatic brain injury
