Medical and Psycho-social Aspects of Life Care Planning with Brain Injury


This online course has a focus on the medical and psychosocial consequences of brain injuries and cerebral vascular accidents (CVA/stroke), including family, community, and vocational variables, with considerations for both Adult and the Pediatric cases. The course will be split between traumatic onset brain injury adult and pediatric and birth onset brain injury such a cerebral palsy. Because the nature of the etiology significantly impacts the nature of the outcome with respect to cognitive, psychological, social, behavioral and motoric deficits, the life care planning needs and recommendations are adjusted in each instance.
