Event description

Description

NT PHN working in partnership with Sports Medicine Australia, invite you to attend the Assessing Concussion and Return to Play session.

In recent years, we are seeing the long-term outcomes and effects that concussion is having on sports people that have had a concussion or like injury. There are now guidelines within nearly all sporting bodies in regards to return to sport after a supposed concussion, and this is usually a medical clearance from a Doctor. Whilst there are some medical practitioners aware of the concussion ramifications and what the medical clearance ‘stands for’, General Practitioners that are not currently involved in sport and or need to gain further education.

Presented by Sports Medicine Registrar Dr Viran De Silva, this workshop will deliver an overview on concussion in sports and obligations for medical clearance to return to play.

Learning outcomes:

  • The best treatment for concussion
  • Different sporting codes regulations for returning to sport after concussion
  • Increase GP’s knowledge of concussion in sport
  • Why sports require GP’s sign off on form

Registrations close on the 21/02/2018
