Course Description

When physical abuse in a domestic violence relationship escalates, injuries sustained by the victim can sometimes go undiagnosed and untreated. One of the most concerning injuries that can be overlooked is a concussion or traumatic brain injury. When domestic violence advocates know the warning signs of a concussion or brain injury and ask the right questions, they can help the survivor to access important medical care. The Concussion Institute at Northside Hospital Duluth's presentation will include concussion education and awareness, signs and symptoms, and concussion management.
