    There is a lot of relevant information to process in the course and the option to save articles for further reference allows for timing to integrate. The course definitely helped me to ensure understanding of the most current international protocols for return to activity post concussion. The information on CTE will be very useful in assisting with my role in educating clients on the many different aspects of cognition that need to be considered and to provide the reassurance and proactive response that this requires.

    This course is great for any student or clinician who wants the most up to date information regarding concussions and CTE. This course will challenge what you think you know about concussions, and use the latest research to do so. The information is clearly presented and research papers are provided to download and read as you can. I couldn’t recommend this highly enough to anyone working with athletes or patients who may present with concussion symptoms. This is a great first step in dispelling a lot of widespread myths and misunderstandings around concussions and CTE currently. You will not be disappointed!

    By far one of the best courses I have ever taken. Didn’t know there is so much evidence out there to support healthcare professionals with concussion. Learned so much and I hope I will be able to take the second part next year. CCMI is amazing, thank you so much!
