1 Mission Statement: The Rehabilitation Nurses Society is a membership organization that provides continuing education and networking for medical care coordination. The professional goal of its members is to advocate for quality patient care while utilizing community resources in a cost effective manner. August 2010 August 2010 Come join friends and colleagues for a time of lunch and learning! August’s Educational Topic CONCUSSION: A CONUNDRUM presented by Dr. Sepehr Khonsari, Kelli McSwan, PhD, and Brian Roberts, Certified Athletic Trainer We know that athletes want to get back on the field as soon as possible. They may not listen to their body or understand the potential consequences of a concussion. After all, the symptoms can be subtle and easily go unnoticed by athletes, their family members, team medical staff or coaches. This is why it is so important that case managers learn about concussions. Dr. Sepehr Khonsari will discuss medical management of concussed patients, Kelli McSwan, PhD will discuss neuropsychological screening of concussed patients and Brian Roberts, Certified Athletic Trainer will discuss the benefits of a comprehensive concussion program in returning athletes to play and injured workers back to work after concussions.

2 President’s Message By Renae Paulson, RN August 1, 2010 Dear RNS Members and Friends, August: The month I was born. The anniversary of my birthday makes me a bit more philosophical as I ponder where I came from and where I am going. Examining life principles that direct my paths and guide my responses to life’s situation helps me to recommit to doing my best. Allow me to share some of these truths with you… Do your best and trust that others do their best. And be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. ~Mother Teresa~ How much are you worth? I'm not talking about money. We confuse self-worth with net worth, but they are very different. Your value has nothing to do with your valuables. How much are you worth? I once read an article in the Journal of Hospital Practice that calculated how much each of the enzymes and hormones and all the different things in your body are worth. The author added them up and if you are an average size person you are worth six million fifteen dollars and forty-four cents ($6,000,015.44) based on your weight. (Some of us are worth more!) You're a six-million dollar man or a six-million dollar woman! The article's author also estimated that, if you calculate the cost of creating each cell in your body, it would be about six thousand trillion dollars. You are priceless. ~ Rick Warren ~ Each of us makes his own weather, determines the colour of the skies in the emotional universe which he inhabits. ~ Fulton Sheen ~ I wish to thank Laura Nugent with Pro Active Physical Therapy for her talk on Industrial Rehabilitation. The key to obtaining positive outcomes is having an understanding of the principles of movement and treatment goals. A hearty ‘Thank You’ to our business partners that continue to provide goodies to raffle at each meeting and this meeting was no exception! Francine Aron from Casa Colina, Ken K with Advantage Plus, Barbara Tucker with Dr. David Heskiaoff, Brett McKee with American Ramp, Cindy Dixon with Special Care Nursing Service, Sandra Bross with Integrated, and Continuity Care home Nurses. Stay well and I hope to see you at the RNS meeting on August 26, Renae Paulson, RN RNS President
