Session Fourteen: Interdisciplinary Care Model for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Psychological Health (PH) Conditions: Multi-Axial Assessment and Outcomes
As the Military Health System institute dedicated to understanding complex combat and mission related comorbid traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychological health (PH) conditions, the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) delivers interdisciplinary and holistic care, conducts focused research, and exports knowledge to benefit service members, their families and society. This presentation will review 1) key Department of Defense (DoD) clinical and research priorities, 2) the interdisciplinary and integrative Intensive Outpatient Program for chronic TBI and PH conditions, 3) assessment and implementation of integrative modalities into traditional treatment paradigms to maximize patient centric care and outcomes, 4) advanced technology to assess neural network disruption, and 5) the development of a comprehensive database to identify specific treatment subpopulations.
