TBI Provider Resources

TBICoE develops practical, easy-to-use clinical tools to support military and civilian health care providers in assessing and treating service members and veterans who have sustained a TBI. Providers can access clinically-relevant information and resources that address common symptoms associated with mild TBI, such as headache, sleep disturbances and vision problems. We also offer Provider Education materials for our clinical recommendations and tools.

Most clinical recommendations have related patient resources to help providers educate their patients through recovery. Check out the Patient and Family Resources section to locate fact sheets, family and caregiver support tools.

TBI educators, known as regional education coordinators, may also be available in your location to provide training on our clinical tools. Email TBICoE's dissemination branch to be connected with an REC nearest you.
