Educating Remotely About Head Trauma

January 28, 2010

As a leading institute on head trauma and the care of those who suffer from head traumas, the Brain Trauma Foundation, chaired by Alan Quasha, has made it their highest priority to educate.  They want medical professionals around the United States to know the most up-to-date scientific information on brain trauma, and to use the best treatment guidelines when working with these patients.

To this end, they offer a number of localized programs, and many that are available with distance learning.  One such program, the New York State Quality Improvement Program for Traumatic Brain Injury evaluates the acute care that traumatic brain injury patients receive from the time of the injury through the first two weeks after the injury.  They do so in specific New York State Trauma Centers.

This program is currently used in 19 trauma centers and it has shown marked improvements in severe TBI care.
