Brain Injury Professional Casual Conversations - Shared screen with speaker view
Loving these conversations, thank you for organizing!
Woohoo Occupational Therapy!!
Can we have links to Nick Reed’s materials for youth?
Congratulations Nick! What an accomplishment. Excellent news
Neck injury and concussion in women that is greater perhaps due to weaker neck muscles.
CONCUSSION CLUBS in High School is a great idea Nick
Yes! Kudos on the Concussion Club idea. Briliant!
Have you heard of Team Up Speak Up program from the Concussion Legacy Foundation? https://concussionfoundation.org/programs/team-up-speak-up
Social support is at a minimal level when it comes to CONCUSSIONS
Yes...a brilliant idea! Just the term "Concussion Club" takes the stigma and sting away a bit..... I plan to bring this into an upcoming training.....thank you!
Exactly, CONCUSSIONS is not only a sports injury as it is commonly thought
Great idea to start "Concussion Clubs" in middle school so they will have a solid foundation in learning and speaking up about concussions and supporting those who have them
In the club have they talked about the importance of preventing secondary/multiple concussion?
Concussion Legacy Foundations "Team Up Speak Up" is excellent for awareness!
Headway foundation also provides excellent awareness for teams (I know college, but I imagine HS/MS as well). They talk about “New Tough”
Katerina Dejkoska is the filmmaker of the documentary “OVERCOMING” about Traumatic Brain Injury. In it Dr.Giacino elaborates with medical facts, Marilyn Spivack so vividly explains about TBI, and among 5 TBI survivors is one female with MILD TBI or Concussion. It is an invisible injury but with devastating consequences as is seen in the documentary "OVERCOMING"
Also, Dr. David Wang, sports medicine provider, wrote a “rap” to raise awareness in a more friendly way. https://fb.watch/2rrhkERJDT/
^A rap about “knowing the signs” of concussions

Love the cat.

I am an attorney with 2 female clients whom have suffered TBI in an auto crash case. My clients are turning to me not only to manage the case but to direct them to potential treatment options. I am not a medical expert. I am learning from a chance call with Katherine on another matter. I am not hearing their current treaters mention distinctions between male and female concussion. What does the mainstream treater of concussion or TBI know of your research. Should specific questions be asked of treaters.
Has anyone looked into the possible overlap between POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome)symptoms following concussion? There appears to be sex differences in POTS and concussion can also trigger POTS.
Is it possible to have access to Nick Reed's Concussion Club materia?
Hi everyone, you can also follow the ABI Research Lab's work on twitter @abiresearchlab. We look forward to hearing from you!
BIA-MA has outreach designed to each age level within the schools called Think-
For brain injury, prevention is the only "cure".....
This has been a terrific session. Great work going on in Canada! Keep it up in 2021! email@example.com
would love to hear more about Nick’s RtL program.
BIA-MA programs have been successful for a number if years. Great resource! Helen Stewart is a good connection.
QUESTION — Thank you for the informative talk. I’m interested in gender differences in older women — is there a good resource for that population?
Yes! And how the Return to Learn during COVID! That certainly alters accomodations….
oh! thank you! school first has been very helpful to me!
Gaylord Hospital in CT also offers educational programs- ThinkFirst. Their website has more info, but they have staff (clinicians) go to schools and I believe they have different modules for different age groups.
I have a question for the neurologists on here regarding sex differences. I'm not a neurologist and was wondering if this paper was well accepted in the field, as I have heard there may be some controversy: Jean-Pierre Dollé, Andrew Jaye, Stewart A. Anderson, Hossein Ahmadzadeh, Vivek B. Shenoy, Douglas H. Smith,Newfound sex differences in axonal structure underlie differential outcomes from in vitro traumatic axonal injury,Experimental Neurology,Volume 300,2018,Pages 121-134,ISSN 0014-4886,https://doi.org/10.1016/j.expneurol.2017.11.001.
Here is a link to our resource to help teachers better support their students return to school/life: https://schoolfirstconcussion.ca/
is anyone accessing help from SLPs at schools
i would love to comment.
Dr Dorrett Johnson
I am Dr. Dorrett Johnson RN MPH PhD. I am the AUTHOR of a recent book title: Impact, Keeping Young Players Safe. This is available on Amazon.com.
We have been conducting research into older women and falls with head injury and concussions in the UK
just thinking SLPs are underutilized at schools when it comes to mTBI. so wanted to see if this group had a different experience
Linda Riccardo Henderson
how do we capture info from chat
I have real-time data collected from all of the people were are describing. I would love to present with everyone. www.powerofpatients.com firstname.lastname@example.org
