About the Course
This training targets those who play a significant role in supporting individuals who have experienced a brain injury.
Caregivers and those who work in rehabilitation and community settings will benefit from this course. This course is developed as an introduction to understanding the brain’s anatomy and function and how these may be impacted by a variety of brain injuries.
The course then reviews client-specific considerations and approaches to brain injury rehabilitation. It provides participants with strategies they can apply to their day-to-day work supporting individuals who are living with the effects of brain injury.
