TRACK: OEM Clinical Practice
While there has been a significant focus in the last few years on sports- related concussion care, there is not much in the way of research or evidence-based medicine guidelines on occupationally related concus- sion evaluation and management. This course will allow the attendee to understand current accepted concepts in concussion evaluation and management, neurophysiology, proper imaging and neurocognitive testing recommendations, and review of rehabilitation training, with a focus on return-to-work progressions. A discussion of permanent im- pairment ratings for concussion diagnoses will take place, as well as the current military related treatment for soldiers and veterans suffer- ing from post concussive syndrome. This session may be of particular interest to residents and recent graduates.
