Fatigue Management following Acquired Brain Injury in Clinical Practice

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations

Description

Fatigue is a common complaint following acquired brain injury (ABI). Although several interventions have been evaluated, such as pharmacological treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy, and metacognitive strategies, there is currently insufficient evidence to support a gold-standard for treatment in clinical practice. This workshop covers issues to consider in fatigue rehabilitation for adult ABI populations. The participants will learn about factors that may contribute to fatigue and the interplay of fatigue with associated factors, assessment of fatigue, including patient-reported outcome measures, and differential diagnostic considerations. Further, management strategies for fatigue will be presented, including metacognitive strategies for improving problem solving and attention, and behavioral strategies of an interdisciplinary Energy Management program in vocational rehabilitation. The workshop will incorporate research findings from the scientific literature, case examples, and exercises.
