Lowcountry AHEC Offering Continuing Education Program on Traumatic Brain Injury

Lowcountry AHEC will be offering Acquired Brain Injury: A Clinical Picture and Rehabilitation Strategies on June 30 at Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital in Charleston. This multi-disciplinary program will discuss the challenges faced when working with patients with traumatic brain injury in a rehabilitative setting.  Participants will review the pathophysiology of traumatic brain injury, as well as explore common symptomologies that challenge caregivers and healthcare professionals working with survivors of traumatic brain injury.  The program will discuss issues related to specific populations, such as sports injuries, adolescents, and the elderly, as well as the social, ethical and legal challenges faced when working with this patient population.
