2008 Acquired Brain Injury Applied Concept Course on DigiVision :: 2 Full Days
Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is an umbrella term that encompasses Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Cerebral Vascular Accident (CVA). Neuroanatomy will be presented as it is relevant to understanding the effects of injury on the visual system. Behavioral changes, the medical care systems, and literature reviewing the effectiveness of visual therapy in the ABI population will be discussed. This overview serves as the basis for the optometric management of ocular and visual consequences of ABI. Protocols for the evaluation of ocular and visual evaluations for ABI patients will be presented. Special accommodations for testing and treating these patients will be discussed. Treatment plans will be presented for: ocular disease, binocular and accommodative dysfunctions, ocular motor and fixation deficits, glare, photosensitivity, visual field and visual information processing defects. Effectively caring for this population is both an optometric and emotional challenge which employs the fullscope of optometric knowledge and skills.
The course will conclude with case presentations and in-depth coverage of factors that are of prime importance in the practice management of ABI patients including appropriate record keeping and billing procedures.
