Progressive Return to Activity Following Acute Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury- Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, AK, 20 May 2021
This is a training for military providers facilitated by the TBI champion and/or local Regional Education Coordinator (REC). The presentation is a combination of didactic lecture, group discussion, and case scenarios. This training will provide information about the updated Progressive Return to Activity (PRA) Clinical Recommendation (CR) to DoD providers. Providers will use this knowledge to progress patients through the stages of the updated PRA protocol. Providers who take the training will progress through the training information and follow the stages of the updated PRA algorithm in order to prescribe treatment for service members who sustain a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). This training information will educate medical providers how to use the updated PRA CR protocol, a recommended step-by-step approach to return service members who sustain a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) to duty. This will support a more standardized approach to military care following a concussion.
This activity provides continuing education for physicians, nurses, and physician assistants. A certificate of attendance is available for other attendees.
