Employees of Washington County Hospital's Total Rehab Care recently attended and presented at the Brain Injury Association of Maryland Inc. annual conference in Linthicum Heights, Md. The conference provided information about brain injury treatment, services, research and advocacy with the goal of improving collaboration and networking between individuals with brain injury, families and professionals.
Amy Byard, Laura Horman, Matt Lilly, Shirley Stevens and Khrys Thompson gave a presentation at the conference titled, "Take Home Tips for Building a Model Brain Injury Program." The presentation offered tips to create your own brain injury program where nursing, physicians, patients, families, administrators, social workers, therapists and support personnel are equally involved in daily operational decisions and ongoing program enhancements. The presentation also offered treatment ideas, documentation formats and communication methods that enhance outcomes across the continuum from acute care to inpatient rehab to outpatient setting to return to work or school.
