Physical therapists may encounter clients with TBI at various stages in their lifespans and in a full range of healthcare settings. The course should be especially helpful to clinicians who do not routinely encounter this disorder. This course addresses prevalence, causes, and classifications of TBIs; motor, sensory, and cognitive impairments of body structures resulting from a TBI; TBI-specific outcome measures; specialized examination and intervention considerations; and a review of the long-term consequences that may present in a person who has sustained a TBI. Supplemental resources are also provided for physical therapy professionals who desire to further their understanding of the care of those with TBIs.
