The 2015 Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) Summit: Continuum of Care and Care Transitions in the Military Health System will be held Sept. 9-11, 2015. This year’s summit combines a "live" in-person event at Defense Health Headquarters (DHHQ) in Falls Church, Virginia, with a “virtual” online component to reach a wider audience.
This year’s summit will promote a collaborative approach to meeting the psychological health and traumatic brain injury (TBI) needs of today’s service members, veterans and their beneficiaries in all treatment contexts and phases of recovery. The psychological health and TBI tracks will address factors that challenge and facilitate the provision of quality, sustained health services across care transitions and the continuum of care.
Professionals involved in all aspects of psychological health and TBI care, education, and research for the military population including physicians, behavioral health providers, allied health and rehabilitation providers, nurses, social workers, researchers, and Military Health System leaders.
