Studies have shown a significant relationship between brain injury and dementia. Researchers have learned that a history of traumatic brain injury (TBI) increases the risk of developing dementia later in life. This course will address the impact of brain injuries on cognitive function and how to mitigate the risk of cognitive decline in individuals with a history of brain injury.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • List 6 or more modifiable risk factors for dementia.
  • Summarize the link between various types of brain injuries and dementia.
  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of brain injuries and explore their impact on cognitive function. Identify special considerations for high-risk populations.
