Introduction and Core Elements
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a silent epidemic in which an estimated 80% of the mild traumatic injuries go undiagnosed and untreated. This isn’t because people don’t care, it’s because people don’t know what to do next, and which specialists to engage for an accurate diagnosis.
- Your participation in this workshop is one step toward reducing this statistic because this course is designed to provide exactly that kind of guidance and education to people with TBI and their caregivers to speed the road to recovery.
- One of the most powerful tools we provide to the caregiver is the TBI Strategies O.R.R. process. This process of Observe, Record, Report can be put into action immediately simply by being aware of how the person with TBI is reacting and responding to their environment, stimulation, medications, and activities. Recording and Reporting these observations will empower the TBI recovery team to make informed decisions about the treatment plan for the person with TBI.
1. Write a description of Observe, Record, and Report (O.R.R.) from your experience.
2. Pick one point from the list of “Creating a Mindset of Success” and describe how you’re going to accomplish that.
