About the Program

Diagnosis & Treatment in Concussion and Brain Injury is this year’s annual preeminent Workers’ Compensation Medical Conference in Connecticut. You will hear from medical experts about brain injury and post-concussion syndrome, level of consciousness, diagnosis, relationship of the diagnosis to a work injury, and treatment of brain injuries. An eye expert will discuss visual disturbances caused by  traumatic brain injury or concussion, causes, aggravation, conditions found, and treatment. An ear, nose, and throat specialist will discuss the diagnosis and management of ear and dizziness issues resulting from a head injury. A neuropsychologist will discuss neuropsychological exams and how they assist in evaluating causation and treatment. A psychiatrist will discuss evaluation and treatment of traumatic brain injury/concussion and how treatment has changed. A therapist will discuss the relevance of prior history and comorbidities in evaluation and treating traumatic brain injury/concussion. They will also discuss how quantitative electroencephalogram (EEG) can help to confirm traumatic brain injury/concussion, the validity of the assessment, and its admissibility in court. Administrative law judges will share thoughts from the bench on concussion and traumatic brain injury cases. Doctors, administrative law judges, and attorneys will  respond to questions at the end of the morning and afternoon sessions.
