Acquired Brain Injury: Principles, Care Management, and Treatment Settings
Presented by Stan Smith, Vice President of Acute Care for Paradigm, and Dr. Mary Newton
Originally presented on April 15, 2021
Case managers, registered nurses, and adjusters are called upon to work with injured workers who have experienced an acquired brain injury. These injuries can affect all aspects of a person’s health and their ability to re-engage in their pre-injury occupation, and have lifelong effects for the injured worker and their family.
Because of these wide ranging and dramatic impact points, it’s essential for workers’ compensation claims management professionals to develop a basic understanding of the principles of brain injury. They should also understand methods used by healthcare professionals to assess the extent of acquired brain injury, and review the basic capabilities of different treatment settings where the injured worker will receive healthcare services on their recovery journey.
