Sports Concussions - An Evidence Based Course Designed to Maximize Results is organized by Healthclick and will be held from Apr 27 - 28, 2019 at Medstar Montgomery Medical Center, Olney, Maryland, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 hours of CME credit. Course Description : This course is a two-day advanced evidenced based course specific to Sport Related Concussion in today’s health care environment. Course attendees will be equipped with a systematic evaluation of patients who have sustained a concussion and will be provided with tools to improve patient outcomes to return an athlete safely and efficiently to play. Current evidence supports a multi-modal approach to concussion management based on clinical trajectories. These trajectories include; cervical, ocular, vestibular, post-traumatic migraine, cognitive/fatigue and anxiety/mood and when identified early can facilitate active rehabilitation and return to sport. Conference Objectives are: • Describe pathophysiology of sport related concussion and current diagnostic and management strategies employed both on the field and in the clinic. • Identify potential symptomology following concussion to include cognitive, orthopedic, neurological, physiological and psychological dysfunction. • Compare and contrast differences between special populations to include child and elite athletes in regards to concussion management. • Discuss objective testing utilized in sport related concussion to include sideline assessment tools, computerized neurocognitive testing, and specific measures for cervical, ocular, vestibular and exertional impairments. • Perform a comprehensive concussion evaluation to include cervical examination, vestibular ocular examination and exertional testing to quantify impairments commonly occurring with concussion injury. • Identify driving subtypes via clinical trajectories specific to individual patients in order to facilitate return to sport in a timely fashion when appropriate. • Compare and contrast current evidence on the role of rest versus guided active rehabilitation strategies to include decision making on initiation of return to play protocol. • Design appropriate impairment based treatment plans based on clinical trajectories and driving subtypes that are multi-modal to insure safe return to play. • Employ sport specific drills that address post concussive impairments and insure athlete is safe to return to sport and/or activity. • Identify patients that need referral to neuropsychology, neurology or possible neuro-optometry for further assistance in post concussive management. • Discuss patient and caregiver education on current evidence regarding residual effects and potential sequelae from concussion injury. • Describe current technology available for both diagnostic and intervention of sport related concussion. • Design effective home exercise program to prevent reoccurrence of symptomology and facilitate functional athletic independence. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
