title Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury: Current Issues
description "…issues related to diagnosing PTSD in individuals with mild to moderate TBI, prevalence estimates and treatment strategies." Some technical glitches and poor quality video, with slides in separate PDFs, so it's a bit unwieldy but worth viewing. It seems to have been attended by only nine or so people so I'm glad to give it a wider audience. Part of the ongoing webcast series for professionals, Idaho Traumatic Brain Injury Virtual Program Grand Rounds. Disclaimer: "The contents do not necessarily represent the policy of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and you should not infer endorsement by the Federal government." Okay.
