Michigan TBI Training

Michigan Traumatic Brain Injury Training


This site provides structured learning opportunities on the causes, symptoms, and treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI is one form of acquired brain injury (ABI) resulting from an external force such as a fall or a car accident. The site also provides information and advocacy resources for nursing home residents diagnosed with TBI and their family members to ensure appropriate treatment and a successful community discharge.

Original Content

Original training materials were prepared by experts with extensive experience in brain injury rehabilitation and TBI training curriculum development at both state and national levels. Topic selection was guided by needs assessment surveys with Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR) assessors and past participants of a previous version of the Michigan TBI online training program.

Collaborative Development

Training materials were refined and improved collaboratively with significant input from an advisory committee representing diverse stakeholder groups, including brain injury educators, rehabilitation specialists, nursing facility staff, caregivers, and brain injury survivors. The Long-Term Care Division of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services also provided valuable information support.
