Concussion is a significant and complex health issue within the Australian sporting landscape at all levels of play.
Sports Medicine Australia and the NSW Office of Sport have partnered to deliver a webinar aiming to provide those in attendance with a greater knowledge of concussion, its prevalence, signs and symptoms, recognition and management, return to play and long-term issues.
Hosted by leading concussion researcher, Dr Andrew Gardner (University of Newcastle), the webinars will provide sports trainers, community sport stakeholders and sports medicine professionals involved in sport with an in depth, detailed analysis of current concussion assessment tools and an open forum to ask questions and discuss ideas.
This webinar is free, but registration is essential.
Dr Gardner is an Early Career Fellow with the School of Medicine & Public Health at the University of Newcastle, and an honorary clinical research fellow with the Hunter New England Local Health District. He is also a Co-Director of HNEH’s Sport Concussion Clinic, an Executive Committee Member of the Priority Research Centre for Stroke and Brain Injury, and serves as a member of the Rugby Australia’s Concussion Advisory Group.
Registrations have now been filled. We are exploring the possibility of holding another webinar, so for updates, keep an eye out on the SMA Member E-Newsletter and our social media channels for more details.
