The challenges experienced after acquired brain injury can often have a more significant emotional impact on families of survivors than on the survivors themselves. In order to guide families through the transition of injury, acute care, rehab, outpatient rehab, and return to home, it is important that health care providers counsel and educate families throughout all levels of these processes. There are unique considerations when providing information and guidance to these families.
This course provides information related to family education, including coping and grieving stages, discussion of change in family roles, and ambiguous loss. Feedback from actual families of persons with acquired brain injuries and case study examples is presented throughout the session.
This Seminar-on-Demand is 3 contact hours in length (check your state’s approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).
