|IMMEDIATE RELEASE||June 07, 2011|
The Department of Defense announced today it has released a new mobile application for health care professionals, the Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Pocket Guide. This application, developed by the National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2), gives providers a comprehensive, quick reference that includes clinical practice guidelines for assessing and treating service members and veterans who have sustained a mild traumatic brain injury, commonly referred to as a concussion.
“This new tool is about providing clinicians with quick and convenient access to clinical guidelines for concussion care. It not only allows the clinician to provide evidenced-based care but maximizes time spent with the patient,” said Katherine Helmick, deputy director for traumatic brain injury
