post-injury. Attendees will analyze advanced cases and will learn to
use the Vestibular/Ocular Motor Screening Examination as part of the
clinical interview.
Part One: Introduction to Clinical Trajectories

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, the learner will be able to:

Identify the role of the clinical interview, vestibular-ocular

motor screening, and computerized neurocognitive testing in
the assessment of sports-related mTBI

Conceptualize mTBI as a heterogeneous entity

Use the VOMS as a tool to identify clinical trajectories

See how clinical management, treatment, and rehabilitation

decisions are dictated by the clinical trajectories and put this
into practice

Refer to clinical case data specific trajectories in their

treatment of concussions.
