A team's medical trainer recently asked.…What are the steps OHA takes when a potential recipient contacts OHA for help?
These are the steps involved with the One
on-boarding and healing process...
Listen and dialogue with the individual (recipient) about their situation.
o Have the individual complete the One
Away Health & Wellness Assessment.
Individual has an
evaluation exam with a qualified medical practitioner.
A brain healing plan for recipient is set into place with a medical professional and a specific healing modality or a combination is determined for use.
o The recipient starts with customized plan.
o If needed, OHA provides monetary resources to initiate and or complete plan.
o OHA supports, monitors and encourages recipient during the active healing plan.
o Re-evaluate progress of healing with medical professional and recipient.
o Congratulate recipient for their disciplined work during this healing journey.
Away follows up with recipient quarterly to encourage future brain healthy living.
Complications and symptoms resulting from sports-related brain injuries are like human finger prints...they are all different and thus do require customized plans.
