In this Mitchell Rosenthal Memorial Research webinar, Dr. Mark Bayley, MD, FRCPC, and Professor Jennie Ponsford, AO, MA (Clinical Neuropsychology), Ph.D.,  will describe the updated set of cognitive rehabilitation guidelines developed using a rigorous process and provides updated guidance for clinicians. The international group of cognitive researchers and clinicians (known as INCOG) was reconvened to develop INCOG 2.0: Guidelines for Cognitive Rehabilitation Following TBI. The INCOG 2.0 series includes a paper on the updated methodology for the development of the guidelines and another on the updated principles of cognitive assessment and rehabilitation.  The remainder of the updated series addresses the five main cognitive topics/impairments following TBI (Post Traumatic Amnesia, Attention, Executive Functions, Cognitive Communication, and Social Cognition Disorders and Memory). The purpose of this webinar is to raise awareness of the changes in cognitive rehabilitation best practices.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe the process of development of the INCOG guidelines
  2. Name new updated recommendation topics from the guidelines
  3. Discuss how the INCOG clinical algorithms could be used to tailor treatment to individuals with TBI

Includes 1 ACBIS CEU.
