Description

Each year, 1.6 to 3.8 million recreational and competitive American athletes develop a concussion. Sport-related concussion conversations are often shaped by the media, which increasingly has been reporting on this issue. We believe the conversations surrounding sport-related concussion should be evidence- or consensus-based, and should be shaped by emerging scientific information.

The 2018 AAN Sports Concussion Conference is poised to be a leading voice in shaping the sport-related concussion conversation for all clinicians and scientists involved in the prevention, diagnosis, and management of sport-related concussion. Concussion experts will present up-to-date best practices and emerging scientific information through a variety of formats, including hands-on workshops and debates, to help you:

  • Describe the current state and emerging science regarding concussion pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management
  • Learn about the latest clinical tools and technologies for diagnosis and management
  • Discover emerging issues in post-concussion syndrome diagnosis and management
  • Discuss the potential long-term sequelae from sport-related brain trauma

Physicians may earn up to 19.5 CME, and Athletic Trainers may earn up to 19.5 CE, along with valuable skills that may be applied to youth, high school, collegiate, or professional arenas.
