TBI Module 1 With Professor Carrick On-demand
Carrick Institute Concussion/mTBI Program
The Carrick Institute concussion/mTBI program is designed to train healthcare professionals how to understand, examine and treat sports-related concussions/mTBI. This program is one of immersive integrated clinical education designed to promote mastery of the subject area and long-term learning.
Goal and Learning Outcomes
The purpose of our Concussion/mTBI program is to inform healthcare providers about the incidence, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of sports-related concussions and the potential for serious long-term outcomes such as dementia. Completion of this program will enable the healthcare practitioner to:
- Design and Implement a Concussion Treatment Program
- Design and conduct a brain and vestibular rehabilitation program
- Design evidence-based treatment plans
- Utilize a current evidence-based examination process to quantify brain function and human performance
- Define sports-related concussions and the sports in which they are most often found
- Describe the immediate and long-term symptoms of sports-related concussions
- Discuss expert recommendations for preventing/managing sports-related concussions
- Prepare health care professionals with advanced knowledge and skills in diagnosis and treatment of Concussion/mTBI.
This program prepares our Clinical Scholars to be able to:
- Create innovative clinical environments designed to manage the Concussion/mTBI patient.
- Learn to evaluate and create individual programs to care for patients after Concussion/mTBI.
- Leverage evidence-based clinical practice to create a best practice that networks with other Concussion/mTBI specialists.

“As after many Carrick Institute learning experiences I feel like my eyes have been opened. Things that previously have slipped by unnoticed now jump out at me. I was blind but now I see. Sometimes it’s now so apparent it startles me.”

What is health?
The word health refers to a state of complete emotional and physical well-being. Healthcare exists to help people maintain this optimal state of health.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), healthcare costs in the United States were $3.5 trillionTrusted Source in 2017.
However, despite this expenditure, people in the U.S. have a lower life expectancy than people in other developed countries. This is due to a variety of factors, including access to healthcare and lifestyle choices.
Good health is central to handling stress and living a longer, more active life. In this article, we explain the meaning of good health, the types of health a person needs to consider, and how to preserve good health.
In 1948, the World Health Organization (WHO)Trusted Source defined health with a phrase that modern authorities still apply.
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
In 1986, the WHOTrusted Source made further clarifications:
“A resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities.”
This means that health is a resource to support an individual’s function in wider society, rather than an end in itself. A healthful lifestyle provides the means to lead a full life with meaning and purpose.
In 2009, researchers publishing inThe LancetTrusted Source defined health as the ability of a body to adapt to new threats and infirmities.
They base this definition on the idea that the past few decades have seen modern science take significant strides in the awareness of diseases by understanding how they work, discovering new ways to slow or stop them, and acknowledging that an absence of pathology may not be possible.
