What is the value of cognitive assessments that are completed in inpatient rehabilitation settings? Do these assessments predict subsequent patient outcomes? The aim of this research is to understand the predictive validity of the Cognitive Linguistic Scale (CALS), a cognitive monitoring measure for pediatric inpatient rehabilitation.
Upon completion, participants will have an understanding of common practices for cognitive assessment in the inpatient setting.
Participants will understand preliminary research examining the predictive validity of inpatient cognitive assessment.
Participants will be able to discuss additional acute factors that may impact longer-term cognitive recovery after pediatric traumatic brain injury.
