The DSM-5 Approach to Evaluating Traumatic Brain Injury
David Arciniegas, MD
Hal Wortzel, MD
Seminar date: 9/4/2014
Description: The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) approach to the evaluation of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and its neuropsychiatric sequelae has changed substantially relative to that in prior versions of this manual. These changes are especially evident in the DSM-5 section on Neurocognitive Disorders, which presents a definition of TBI modeled after that of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine and organizes evaluation of the neuropsychiatric sequelae of TBI around mild and major neurocognitive disorders. This lecture will review these and related matters in the DSM-5 approach to TBI and their implications on the care of Veterans with such injuries.
Intended Audience: Clinicians evaluating and/or treating Veterans with TBI (physicians, psychologists, nurses, social workers)
