Brain Trauma Foundation

The Brain Trauma Foundation was founded to improve the outcome of traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients by developing best practice guidelines, conducting clinical research, and educating medical personnel.

Research has proven that all brain damage does not occur at the moment of impact but rather evolves over the ensuing hours and days after the initial injury, due to brain swelling and inadequate oxygen and blood flow to the injured brain. In most cases, this secondary damage can be controlled by applying scientific, evidence-based diagnostic and treatment Guidelines, which BTF has developed with medical organizations and physicians with expertise in TBI.

BTF offers updated continuing education activities for all levels of health care professionals caring for TBI patients. The online activities include recorded presentations, live web-based lectures, and interactive learning modules based on the latest scientific-evidence. Also available on the BTF Learning Portal is an online version of the EMS course developed in coordination with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
