C170 - Sports Concussion Skills Workshop I: Event Coverage Skills

Event Time: Wednesday April 26, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Director(s): Vernon Williams MD
Description: Neurologists and those covering events with high risk of concussion require a unique skill set that can be demonstrated and practiced. The acute concussion occurs in an environment that represents a significant departure from office, emergency department, or hospital settings. This program will involve presentation of practical and immediately useful information through an "augmented reality"-like series of presentations. The program environment will mimic the actual sporting event environment. Presentations from faculty will be "augmented" by sound and high definition video-based examples of content. The aim of the program is to provide an interesting and authentic experience for participants as they develop and practice skills related to coverage of sporting events for concussion. This program complements C185: Sports Concussion Skills Workshop II: Office-based Skills, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to appropriately assess injured athletes relative to the issue of concussion. Participants should possess the ability to provide acute recommendations to athletes, trainers, coaches, parents, and other stakeholders in the acute sports-related concussion setting using practical skills. They should be aware of the unique aspects of "real-time" concussion assessment and integration into the athletic event environment.
