The Brain Injury (BI) SIG focuses on neurological insults across the lifespan. The BI SIG allows individuals interested in brain injury to share unique research methods and clinical practices. Our ultimate goal is to increase collaboration among members involved in brain injury clinical services and research, and to increase the profile of brain injury at INS meetings.
The BI SIG conducts monthly webinars focused on various topics related to brain injury. In the past year, we have had lots of great opportunities to learn (and for some, receive CE-credit): trainee Sandra Glazer discussed “Trainees & Brain Injury,” Dr. Keith Yeates allowed us to “Ask everything you want about neuropsychology,” Dr. Christian Abeare informed us on “Performance Validity in Sport-Related Concussion,” Dr. Cynthia Beaulieu discussed “Acute TBI Rehabilitation: Treatment Approaches Associated with Better Outcomes, ” Dr. Michael McCrea and Dr. Laura Blackwell taught us about “Advances in TBI: Emerging Role of Imaging and Blood Biomarkers,” and Dr. Sarah Knight & trainee Taylor Jenkin to talk about “How do you make life work for the family? Enhancing family-centered care during rehabilitation for children and adolescents with acquired brain injury.” We co-hosted a informative webinar with the Dementia SIG that included speakers Dr. Munro Cullum, Dr. Christian Lobue, and Dr. Tina Trudel. All of our webinars can be found and viewed on the INS website.
The BI SIG had a Social at the 2022 Mid-year conference in Barcelona.
The BI SIG has excellent representation at INS conferences through the papers, posters, plenaries, CE-credits, and symposia that our membership presents. The BI SIG creates a directory for our membership to easier guide conference attendees towards brain injury-related events and presentations.
Our BI SIG send out a monthly Member’s Highlight that features a BI SIG member allowing our members to learn about other members.
Look for our member’s yellow ribbons at INS conferences and tag us in events and announcements using the tag #connectingbrainsworldwide
