Course Description

The course uses a combination of multimedia presentations and assigned readings as learning tools. The current knowledge’s surrounding concussion will be discussed, with opinions taken from multiple organizations position statements and peer reviewed journals.The first unit of the course consists of slide presentations on current concepts in concussion. These presentations include definition of concussion, incidence, sport specific concerns, case studies, and an introduction to other forms of mild traumatic brain injury.The course is designed to present the current best practices in concussion management with the understanding that this body of knowledge is currently in a state of transition. The evidence base used to develop concussion management protocols is primarily based upon lower level scientific research. Most of what is considered best practice in concussion management is not based on best evidence, but rather consensus. This class attempts to provide an unbiased knowledge base to the learner by including consensus statements for numerous organizations without professional discrimination.Concussion is a serious and commonly encountered brain trauma often encountered in sport. Not all concussion are sports related, but many concussion in sport are sustained by pediatric or adolescent individuals. These patient populations are especially important because injury to a developing brain may result in long term deficits. The course materials provide for current best practices in the evaluation and management of concussed individuals.
