Co-Occurring Conditions Toolkit (CCT)
Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) presents a number of challenges to military healthcare professionals. Because symptoms of closed head wounds are often similar to those of a number of psychological conditions, assessing and treating patients presenting multiple conditions can be difficult.
Developed by T2, the Co-occurring Conditions Toolkit (CCT) mobile application for smart phones and tablet devices is an electronic version of the familiar Co-occurring Conditions Toolkit published by the Defense Centers of Excellence (DCoE) for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI).
The new app includes the entire contents of the 132-page spiral-bound CCT, and adds enhancements such as interactive decision trees to aid in the identification of appropriate interventions and timing of services for this challenging patient population. Like the bound edition, the app incorporates VA/DoD Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) for the management of concussions and mTBI, together with CPGs targeting common co-occurring conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, chronic opioid therapy, and substance use.
As a mobile app, the new Toolkit offers primary care providers hip-pocket access to critical information and allows for seamless integration of new material, leading to improved quality of care, increased use of evidence-based treatment recommendations, enhanced provider-patient interactions, and more appropriate specialty referrals.
The CCT app is available for download on the Apple iTunes App Store and the Android Market . Click on the links or scan the QR codes below.
