TBICoE Quarterly Education Series: TBI: Military Branch and Job-Specific Risk

November 16, 2023

Program Description

Military job-specific risks such as blast exposures, combatives, and parachute or fast rope landings may increase the chance of traumatic brain injury throughout the armed forces. Awareness of service members in at-risk occupations can improve mitigation strategies and provider identification of traumatic brain injury and associated occupational exposures impacting brain health and performance. Early identification and treatment, regardless of what environment the injury or exposure occurred, is paramount to ensuring optimal outcomes for our service members. This educational activity, hosted by the Traumatic Brain Injury Center of Excellence and facilitated by researchers and clinicians across the DOD will dive into the TBI risks across our military branches and explore what the health services are doing to prevent and treat our service members.
