    ACBIS Brain Injury Fundamentals
    Brain Injury Fundamentals is an all-new training and certificate program designed to recognize the unique needs and challenges of those who care for or interact with individuals with brain injury. This includes non-licensed direct care staff, facility staff, family members and friends, first responders, and others in the community. A pre-conference Brain Injury Fundamentals Training will be held on Sunday, June 23, 2019 (9:00 am – 4:00 pm). The Fundamentals quiz (offered through ACBIS), open to attendees of the course, will be held on Sunday, June 23, 2019 (4:15 pm – 6:30 pm). The mandatory training course covers essential topics such as cognition, guidelines for interacting and building rapport, brain injury and behavior, medical complications, safe medication management, and families coping with brain injury. The course is grounded in adult learning principles, maximizing participant engagement and application through an interactive workbook. Using real-life scenarios to anchor the course concepts, participants learn about the challenges people face following brain injury and the types of support they need. This essential program will help trainees understand different types of behavior, manage medication safely, and provide support to families and friends.

    After successfully completing intensive training and quiz, the trainees will receive a certificate that is valid for three years. Pre-registration is required since limited testing seats are available. Anyone interested in registering for this training must contact Kara Latshaw by calling 1-866-635-7097, or email admin@biapa.org for requirements and registration details. The deadline for applying to Fundamentals to become eligible to take the quiz, and for registering to attend the Training is May 17, 2019. No exceptions to the deadline will be made.
