GOALS FOR 2020
- Complete clinician pocketcards for guidance of Evidence-Based Assessments and Treatments of mTBI in BH diagnoses and conduct product testing with stakeholders.
- SUD: Rachel Adams, John Corrigan
- PTSD: Catie Johnston-Brooks, Shannon Miles
- PAIN: Alison Cogan, Marc Silva

- Systematic review: Activity-based programs for people with TBI (think peer and veteran service organizations, other outdoor activities). To our knowledge, there is no systematic review of what they do in a population with BH conditions.
- How they measure outcomes?
- Are there common or essential elements that make it successful?
- Review of evidence-based psychotherapies with regard to individuals with cognitive difficulties:
- Adaptations, accommodations, specific-types of cognitive issues, or behavioral impairment due to cognitive changes/brain injury
- RE-AIM framework – Implementation: how was an intervention adapted?
- Looking at how adaptations were derived and validated
- Propose an ACRM 2020 – Cross-cutting symposium with Health Services Research and/or other task forces in ACRM
- Exploring other Networking and Special Interest Groups for collaboration
- FoBHI ACRM 2020 symposium – share research interests and look for intersections/opportunities
