Evidence-based Cognitive Rehabilitation: Application in the Treatment of Persisting Post-concussion Symptoms
Dr. Quratulain Khan, PhD, HSPP
Thursday, May 19th
While most individuals who suffer a concussive injury recover fully within a few months, some people experience a prolonged recovery. Many of those with persisting symptoms of concussion report experiencing cognitive difficulties that impact daily functioning. Research shows the benefits of cognitive rehabilitation in the treatment of various cognitive difficulties reported by patients. This keynote will address how attention dysfunction in the aftermath of a concussive injury is treated using evidence-based cognitive rehabilitation approaches. It will also address how other factors such as psychological reactions to the injury may impact recovery and how the treatment integrates psychotherapeutic approaches. The role of neuropsychology will be highlighted.
