Acquired brain injury (ABI) considered a significant public health issue can cause lifelong disability in children. Significant impairment in an individual’s physical, cognitive and psychosocial functioning may become fully apparent when developmental demands increase.
The aim of the project was to offer an inter-active way to get acquainted with these newest practices in Europe in the field of children and youth with ABI, presenting an interdisciplinary approach to the ABI rehabilitation practices.
Thus, we developed an e-Learning platform based on moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment), which consists of a free online system enabling educators to create their own private website filled with dynamic courses that extend learning, anytime, anywhere.
The Moodle course on Interdisciplinary cooperation in rehabilitation of children and youth with ABI is based on guidelines developed during the project. These guidelines are divided into sections (courses) which are supplemented with audio-visual materials and supplementary readings.
Therefore, the structure of the courses is following the structure of the guidelines and comprises the following sections:
- Introduction Section: Purpose of the guideline, Target group, Objective of the present guideline, Definitions and Classification of acquired brain injuries;
- Assessment and Rehabilitation In Hospital Section: Consciousness assessment, Paraclinical assessment, Posttraumatic epilepsy, The assessment and the rehabilitation of the cognitive – behavioral disorder and language disorder, The assessment and the treatment of the spasticity, The main assessment of the upper limb, Upper limb rehabilitation program, The assessment of motor deficit of the lower limbs, functional mobility and gait, Motor rehabilitation and gait recovery;
- Preparation for Discharge Section;
- Continued Development Phase Section: Transition between phase II (rehabilitation during hospitalization) and phase III (rehabilitation after discharge), Assessment, Inter-disciplinary collaboration, Individual programmes in intensive rehabilitation, Description of intervention and development, Parents, siblings and relatives, Transition between phase III and phase IV (continued development phase), Re-test.
