This 2 hour workshop is led by a Certified Athletic Therapist and provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of best practices in concussion management. Participants will gain a greater understanding of recognition and management principles around concussion injuries.
Participants will review injury mechanisms, on-field assessment techniques, the use of Sideline Concussion Tools (such as the Pocket Concussion Recognition Tool and SCAT5), signs & symptoms, concussion “red-flags”, and current best-practices surrounding return-to-play decisions and protocol. There will be a designated time at the end of the presentation for questions and sport-specific inquiries.
