This concussion course is designed to provide an overview of international guidelines on concussion management for healthcare professionals as well as the current evidence surrounding pathophysiology and biomechanical forces acting on the brain during a concussion injury. This in-depth information will provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the latest research to help inform the management of concussed patients. In the third module, you will learn about the latest research surrounding Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) – the chronic neurodegenerative brain disease that has been attributed to concussion. This course is a pre-requisite to the Level 2 CCMI Course for Healthcare Professionals – Clinical Management of Concussion and Persistent Concussion Symptoms

This is an introductory concussion course for licensed healthcare practitioners (i.e., physiotherapists/physical therapists, athletic therapists/trainers, physicians, occupational therapists, chiropractors, etc.). Here is what you will learn:
Pathophysiology of Concussion, Epidemiology & the International Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport (7 hrs)
- What is happening inside the brain during a concussion?
- What sports/activities are most dangerous?
- What is the current standard of care around the world?
Biomechanics of Concussion & Sub-concussive Impacts (1.25 hrs)
- How much force does it take to cause a concussion injury?
- Do all the minor hits you take in sports cause brain damage?
- What are the implications for other tissues such as the neck?
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) (4.75 hrs)
- How much do we really know about this?
- What is the current evidence?
- Should we ban certain sports or is the media been misleading the public?
