Session 1
Telehealth Meets Neuropsychology – C. Munro Cullum, PhD, ABPP

Telehealth is rapidly expanding across many areas of healthcare and has implications and opportunities for the field of neuropsychology. This presentation will provide a review of the history of teleneuropsychology with an emphasis on practical aspects and the evidence supporting its use. This will include an overview of different models of remote assessment and factors to be considered in using teleneuropsychology in practice. The neuropsychological tests that have been studied using videoconference administration will be reviewed along with the evidence supporting the reliability, validity, and consumer acceptability of teleneuropsychology in various populations. Clinical and research applications will be discussed, as well as future implications of this unique approach to the delivery of neuropsychological services.

Session 2
Concussion: Diagnosis, Assessment, and Long-Term Outcomes – C. Munro Cullum, PhD, ABPP

Concussion is a hot topic that has received a great deal of attention in the media and scientific literature in recent years. Information about the acute and potential longer-term effects of this common injury is growing, as is misinformation. This workshop will provide an overview of the facts and myths of concussion, including current diagnostic, assessment, and surveillance practices and research findings. There will be an emphasis on concussion outcomes, including typical and atypical recovery, risk factors, and predictors of recovery. This will be followed by a critical review and summary of the literature on the relationship between concussion and chronic traumatic encephalopathy and needs for future research on concussion.
