Episode 27 | Pediatric Traumatic Brain Injury - With Dr. Keith Yeates

Episode Description:  We discussed INS leadership and research productivity with Keith Yeates, Ph.D., ABPP-CN, in a previous episode (click here to listen to Episode 16 and see Keith's bio). As the most published investigator of pediatric traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the world over the last 10 years, he returns today to discuss the prevalence rates and causes, behavioral sequalae, differences in outcomes, and psychosocial interventions for children with TBI. We also discuss symptom rating scales and performance validity tests in the assessment and management of children with TBI, among many other topics.

Learning Objectives:

  1. List at least 3 ways of diagnosing mild, moderate, and severe traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  2. Explain the distinctions between complicated mild TBI compared to mild TBI and moderate to severe TBI in pediatric populations
  3. Compare the recommendations on safe return to school versus sports following mild TBI
