Hearing and Vision Impairment from Combat Trauma
July 24, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)

The majority of neurosensory disorders resulting from combat trauma are caused by mild traumatic brain injury. Understanding the mechanics of the injury and the associated research guides patient care and treatment recommendations. While there are assistive devices, technologies, training programs and support groups to assist those with vision or hearing loss, it is also important to provide psychological health support to the injured and their families. This webinar will examine current research and evidence-based practices to reduce injury risk and enable prevention and treatment in both clinical and non-clinical settings.
