The 6th Annual Brain Institute: Returning to Life

This nursing CE activity is jointly provided by the Alaska Nurses Association and the Alaska Brain Injury Network (ABIN).

ABIN and the AK Training Cooperative are pleased to present this outstanding educational opportunity.  We have an impressive line up of both national and local experts in the field of brain injury and three tracks to choose from:

 Medical Provider Track will cover the identification, treatment and management of brain injury through new protocols, testing and treatment methods, enabling medical providers to become more proficient and confident in helping their brain injured patients return to their lives.

Support Professionals Track will help professionals working with brain injured Alaskans be more effective and confident addressing neurobehavioral symptoms and substance use following brain injury, why and when to have a neuropsychological evaluation, and the impact of nutrition and diet following brain injury.  Other courses in this track include brain injury in the criminal justice system, returning to work following a brain injury and training on the Ohio State TBI Screening Tool.

One-Day Concussion Identification and Management Certificate Course. This course is specifically designed for coaches, athletic trainers and/or staff to identify the likelihood of a concussion or brain injury.  Certificate recipients will be trained to identify the signs and symptoms of a concussion, gain confidence in their decision to pull an athlete/student from their current activity to receive medical attention and be aware of the possible complications and long term effects of a brain injury.

The general sessions will offer insight into living with a brain injury, the landscape of brain injury in Alaska and who’s who in brain injury rehabilitation.

Training assistance funds will be available; stay tuned for the application and link to registration.
