The Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Community Integration of Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury at TIRR

Training Project 3: Training Non-Specialist Healthcare and Educational Professionals in the Needs of Persons with TBI and How to Adapt Services

Background

Due to unequal access to brain injury rehabilitation services, many persons with TBI receive rehabilitation services from general healthcare professionals with minimal expertise in TBI and knowledge of the community integration needs of this population. There is a strong need for continued education and training of non-specialist healthcare and educational professionals regarding traumatic brain injury and the needs of persons with TBI.

Objectives

The purpose of this training project is to provide training and education to non-specialist healthcare and educational professionals in the needs of persons with TBI and how to adapt services to meet the needs of persons with TBI.

The project includes:

Online Course for Social Workers who work with Persons with TBI

Online Course: Guidebook for Psychologists: Working with Clients with TBI
