Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) announced the topics and dates for the first four monthly webinars in the annual series. The webinars are an opportunity for health care professionals who interact with service members, as well as service members and their families, to learn and ask questions about issues related to psychological health and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
The webinars focus on a broad range of topics such as deployment phases, combat care, balancing home life with a deployed partner, managing challenges with posttraumatic stress disorder and TBI, and advances in behavioral health care and technologies.
The subject matter experts who lead these upcoming webinars help participants understand many difficult issues military families face and present the latest advancements in health care treatment and technology related to psychological health and TBI.
2013 webinar topics and dates are:
Jan. 24 — Substance Abuse and TBI
Feb. 28 — Chronic Pain
March 28 — Vestibular Disturbances After Mild TBI
April 25 — Military Children and Coping with Grief/Loss
Two new provider resources that support the February and March webinars, “Chronic Pain” and “Vestibular Disturbances After Mild TBI” should be on the DCoE website in early 2013.
The DCoE 2012 webinars included insights on helping children cope with deployment, concussion management, managing suicidal behaviors, treating depression, clinical use of mobile apps, and education about posttraumatic stress disorder and TBI. Descriptions and podcasts of these, and all 2012 webinars, are available online.
