Concussion is a major public health priority that transcends age, gender and sport. The under-reporting and recognition of concussion; and the potential for short-term catastrophic consequences and disabling long-term neurological impairment from repeated concussions has prompted the passage of legislation in many states that requires the immediate removal from play of an athlete suspected of having a concussion; mandatory concussion education of all those who intersect with an athlete; and return-to-play clearance by a qualified health care provider. This state-of-the-art symposium highlights the epidemiology of concussion in sport; the pathophysiology of concussion; sideline and outpatient clinical evaluation; standard and novel diagnostic strategies; and implementation of return-to-activity guidelines. The format includes platform lectures, small group workshops, panel discussions, and live two-way remote audio/video concussion evaluations using robotic teleconcussion technology. The faculty is comprised of renowned scientific and clinical experts in the field of concussion from Mayo Clinic and leading US academic medical centers. The intended audience includes athletic trainers, athletic directors, allied health professionals and physicians involved, or with an interest, in the evaluation and management of individuals with concussion. If you cannot attend this symposium onsite it is offered live via a webcast. Separate registration is to be completed.
