    Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) released a new training module to help primary health care providers assess and treat patients with sleep problems after a brain injury.

    The training teaches providers how to quickly navigate the “Management of Sleep Disturbances Following Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): Guidance for Primary Care Management in Deployed and Non-Deployed Settings” clinical recommendation. This clinical guidance helps standardize the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of post-concussion sleep disturbances among service members.

    “The overall goal of this training is to help providers mitigate sleep disturbances resulting from a mild TBI by increasing the consistency of care for patients throughout the Military Health System,” said Dr. Scott Livingston, DVBIC’s education director.
