GOALS FOR 2020

  1. 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
    • DEPRESSION: Lisa Brenner, Amy Herrold
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. Propose an ACRM 2020 – Cross-cutting symposium with Health Services Research and/or other task forces in ACRM
  5. Exploring other Networking and Special Interest Groups for collaboration
  6. FoBHI ACRM 2020 symposium – share research interests and look for intersections/opportunities
