The reviews are in. Health care providers give high marks to the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) Summit home study sessions. The 2016 summit, “State of the Science: Advances, Current Diagnostics and Treatments of Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury in Military Health Care” is offered on demand until April 30.
For another 10 weeks, providers can receive continuing education credit for completing the summit webinars, said Dr. Lolita O’Donnell, DCoE chief of planning and logistics.
“This is an important activity that provides the latest, evidence based training, state-of-the-science updates on diagnostics and treatment modalities in psychological health, traumatic brain injury, and other deployment-related concerns,” O’Donnell said.
The vast majority of on-demand registrants — 93 percent — would recommend them to other health care providers, according to a survey of those who participated. Approximately 87 percent of the participants said they would like to receive information related to other DCoE events.
O’Donnell and her staff believe that even more providers can benefit from the 28 hours of continuing education credits that are available.
“Continued communication and collaboration with our stakeholders is a win-win process for our stakeholders and for the Defense Department in general,” O’Donnell said.
