Sports Medicine Australia (SMA) and the NSW Office of Sport are happy to announce that the free Concussion in Sport workshops will be recommencing in late August!
Concussion is a significant and complex health issue within the Australian sporting landscape at all levels of play. Following on from a successful 2018 roadshow, Sports Medicine Australia and the NSW Office of Sport will again partner to deliver a series of education workshops across NSW in 2020. These programs will provide those in attendance with a greater knowledge of concussion, its prevalence, signs and symptoms, recognition and management, return to play and recent research in the area.
Presented by highly respected researcher, Dr Andrew Gardner from the University of Newcastle. Andrew has recorded an introduction to his workshops, click here to view the recording.
