Dr. David Steiner, Medical Director of Peninsula Hospital Center's Traumatic Brain Injury Unit and Chief of Neurology PHC, Dr. Eric Lippman, Director of the Peninsula Hospital Center Rehabilitation Program and Janet McGowan, RN, Nurse Manager of the TBI Unit at PHC joined Robert Duarte, MD, Co-Director, Long Island Jewish Medical Center Pain & Headache Treatment Center and Co-Director, Neurology Clinic at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, in presenting attendees a variety of information concerning transitional processes experienced by the family caregiver, how to identify medical, wellness, emotional, behavioral and psychosocial issues that influence effective care giving to patients who have suffered acquired brain injuries. "Recognizing that the daily caregiver deals with the ABI patient much more closely than even a personal physician, it is important that caregivers learn how to identify early medical, emotional and psychosocial issues," explains Dr. Steiner, "so they can be addressed promptly.

We hope to do more of these symposiums in the future because both the caregivers and the patients will benefit greatly."
