Application of Behavioral Health Technology Tools in the Clinical Care of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
Jan. 15, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (EST)
The clinical practice guidelines produced by the departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs provide a framework for ensuring evidence-based care for patients with mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). This webinar will demonstrate two mobile applications produced by the National Center for Telehealth & Technology that offer providers evidence-informed tools for treatment and engagement of patients with mild TBI. The presenter will review some empirical findings that support the use of these apps and will demonstrate how to incorporate these tools into current clinical practice. In addition, he will highlight several emerging tools that may have promise for future use with this population.
Additionally, this webinar will:
- Compare innovative, behavioral-health technology tools and describe some of the empirical evidence for their integration in clinical care with mild TBI patients.
- Discuss the use of behavioral-health technology tools as assistive devices in mild TBI rehabilitation to facilitate recovery from the adverse effects of mild TBI and increase engagement in care.
- Distinguish between evidence-based standards of care, as described in the clinical practice guidelines, and the acceptable use of evidence-informed technology tools to supplement clinical care.
