Head Injury Assessment in Primary Care for New Nurse Practitioners

Dec 17, 2019

What's involved in a head injury assessment in primary care?

Most of the time you'll see mild injuries (luckily!) but how do you know if it's a concussion or something more serious?

How do you diagnose a concussion? And who needs imaging?

I got ya covered. In this video you'll learn:

  • What symptoms to look for (and when to worry)
  • What you should find (and shouldn't find) on your physical assessment
  • The treatment and follow up care
  • The best tools to help you assess symptoms and decide how to move forward

PLUS! Download a concussion cheat sheet with everything you need, so you can print it out and keep it at your desk. Download it below this video.

(FYI: to slow down the audio speed, hit the gear symbol in the bottom right corner and change it to .75x or .5x. Closed captions are also located at the bottom R hand corner of the video.

Download your cheat sheet here.

Once you've watched, I'd love to hear from you.

What is one tip that you can take and apply to your practice to help with concussion evaluation? I'd love to know!

Thanks so much for watching. Hang in there, and I'll see you soon.
