SportMedBC will be hosting an upcoming Concussion Management Workshop on October 1st that is being hosted by the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence in Victoria. The workshop will run from 7pm-9pm and we invite everyone from team trainers, coaches, parents to even athletes to attend.
This 1.5 – 2 hour workshop is led by an experienced Athletic Therapist and focusses on sharing the latest medical and scientific information about brain injury, sport risk factors, prevention techniques, and concussion management guidelines.
Participants will review on-field assessment techniques, including the use of the Pocket SCAT2 tool and a review of red flags. As well, the grey area surrounding return-to-play decisions will be explored, providing ample time for specific questions from the audience.
