Sports Medicine Australia (SMA) will pause all face to face service delivery including safer sport courses, Sports Medical Coverage services and local in person professional development events effective immediately to help minimise and manage the potential risks presented by COVID-19.

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, this is a great opportunity open for all within the sporting community.

All workshops are FREE and will run from 6.30pm – 9.00pm. Registration is essential
