2016 Mark Ylvisaker Memorial Pediatric Brain Injury Symposium
Rehabilitation Interventions for Pediatric Brain Injury: Challenges, Opportunities, and the Role of Everyday People
WED, 2 NOV // 2:15 PM – 3:30 PM
ACRM ANNUAL CONFERENCE, Hilton Chicago
Shari L. Wade, PhD, Professor of Pediatrics University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and Director of Research, Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
This talk will focus on the emerging evidence base for rehabilitation interventions for pediatric brain injury including the growing evidence supporting the efficacy of problem-solving and parenting-skills interventions. Emphasis will be placed on the quality of existing evidence, challenges and opportunities for advancing pediatric TBI intervention research including using novel trial designs to address heterogeneity within the population. Consideration will also be given to how TBI interventions can incorporate “everyday people” such as parents and teachers into their design and implementation.
Dr. Wade is a pediatric rehabilitation psychologist and professor of pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and has investigated social environmental predictors of recovery from childhood traumatic brain injury for more than 25 years. She recently developed and tested web-based problem-solving and parenting skills interventions to facilitate child and family adaptation post injury. She is particularly interested in supporting the translation of empirically-based treatment strategies into the standard clinical care. Dr. Wade’s research has resulted in more than 140 peer-reviewed publications and she the inaugural recipient of the Jane Gillett Award from the International Pediatric Brain Injury Society.
