Psychosocial factors such as malapdative illness beliefs and coping behaviours can prolong recovery from mild traumatic brain injury (concussion). As in chronic pain conditions, people with persistent symptoms after concussion appear to have distinct profiles of illness beliefs/behaviours that might respond to different treatment approaches. Dr. Silverberg will outline the rationale for tailored psychologically-informed treatment and describe the protocol of a CIHR-funded study to assess the feasibility of matching patients with persistent symptoms after concussion to tailored treatments.
