Conference Description :
NYU Langone Concussion Center and the Mayo Clinic are partnering to present an exciting and innovative conference highlighting current advances in concussion pathophysiology, diagnosis and management. Recent evidence suggests that repetitive concussions, commonly seen in professional sports, can be associated with progressive cognitive, psychiatric and motor degeneration. Medical professionals are responsible for returning patients to school, play, work and all life activities and will benefit from updates in the literature presented by leaders in the field. Clinicians will learn how to diagnosis and manage concussions occurring from multiple causes.

This two and a half day course will address clinical assessment and management, emerging neuroimaging technologies, advances in blood and imaging biomarkers, rule changes in youth sports, concussion in the female athlete, advances in headache management, and the role of neurocognitive testing in returning athletes to school and play, and rehabilitation. It will provide practical clinical information that may be easily translated to practice.

Conference Objectives are :
• Describe the scope of the problem and the basic science about concussion
• Describe the components of the office exam
• Recognize current medical treatment and other therapy management of headaches
• Incorporate the visual assessment and treatment as it relates to functional performance in life skills
• Outline advances in the areas of fluid biomarkers, imaging, traumatic encephalopathy syndrome, screening the endocrine system and treating sleep and fatigue and incorporate advances as appropriate for patient care
• Outline the scope of therapy services for the patient with concussion, and identify and properly refer to the appropriate therapies
• Provide clear instructions for a progressive return to learn plan
• Recognize indicators for return to activity and describe a progress return to activity plan
