Description: Advances in basic and clinical research has led to an enhanced understanding of the underlying biology of brain injury and improved management strategies. Faculty will facilitate a discussion on the pathogenesis of concussion and post-traumatic headache, and outline evaluation and management strategies that can be implemented in clinical practice in the acute, subacute, and chronic phases. This program complements C21: Concussion: Evaluation and Management in the Acute and Chronic Phases, but covers independent topics.
