Traumatic brain injuries change lives forever and alter the lifelong health of those who sustain them. Managing TBI as a chronic disease is considered best practice, and this strategy is likely to be proven to prevent downstream complications and related hospitalizations and costs (Masel, 2011). For rehabilitation nurses/teams, this requires a level of vigilance and commitment to prevention and early intervention as well as the expectation that physical health and healthy aging may require additional support across the lifespan. At ReMed in Partnership with Learning Services, our teams rely on our nurses for leadership and expertise in this arena. Not only do our nurses work to monitor and manage the health of our clients every day, they are actively involved in advancing the practice of rehabilitation nursing in brain injury. They have also been indispensable to our teams as we have crafted and adapted our practices to be in line with the most up-to-date public health guidance during this pandemic.
