If You've Seen One Traumatic Brain Injury, You've Seen One Traumatic Brain Injury
Listen in as speakers discuss the "unknown" factors that impact the outcomes of individuals who sustain a traumatic brain injury, and how these can be addressed in advance of any injury being sustained. Upon completion of the morning CME event, the attendee will be able to identify key factors that modify the impact of a traumatic brain injury, including sex, preparedness, premorbid personality, and physical disabilities. The attendee will also hear from physicians and athletes who have been involved at the highest level of professional sports and what lessons can be learned in preparing even the youngest of athletes.
