Bill Winingham, along with Dr. Lance Trexler, presented a webinar for the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association on Thursday, June 12, 2014, titled “Neuropsychological Diagnosis in Mild Traumatic Brain Injury.”
The consequences of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) are complicated and controversial. Appropriate diagnosis and management is often not provided in routine medical care and the outcome is quite variable from case to case. This program provided an overview of the neuropsychological diagnostic issues in MTBI, including the role of pre-existing conditions, co-existing diagnoses (e.g., depression), effort or symptom magnification testing, and determinants of long-term outcome.
The emphasis was on developing an understanding of how individual factors affect the expression of a MTBI and how these factors affect the course of recovery (or decline) over time. Different methods of test interpretation that drive neuropsychological diagnoses regarding MTBI were also discussed.
