Hits to the head have occurred since the dawn of time. However, with the expanded research and awareness it seems more and more patients are coming to us for care. The problem is these are probably only a small percentage of patients who truly need our skillset. We, as a profession need to do a better job to raise awareness to non-optometrists and become more comfortable in treating these patients. This lecture will utilize clinical cases to discuss the various treatment options we have available for patients who have sustained a m-TBI. It will also look at how to build relationships with other professions to ensure we are part of the medical team these patients need.
