C185 - Sports Concussion Skills Workshop II: Office-based Skills

Event Time: Wednesday April 26, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Director(s): Vernon Williams MD
Description: The primary activities sports neurologists (and others) execute in clinic include the history and physical examination, interventional procedures, and decision-making. This program will focus on concussion-related skills in each domain. Skills required for a concussion-specific history and physical examination will be detailed. Skills required to perform common interventional procedures of benefit to concussed athletes will be discussed and demonstrated. Issues associated with development of concussion-specific decision-making skills will be presented. The ability to advise patients and other key stakeholders on issues related to benefit, need, or indication for symptom-specific rehabilitation is a decision-making skill. Other decision-making skills are related to academic accommodations, rest vs. exertion challenge and monitored return to play, and retirement from sport vs. continued participation. Video and case examples will be presented, as well as opportunities for participation from attendees. This program complements C170: Sports Concussion Skills Workshop I: Event Coverage Skills, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to use skills discussed, demonstrated, and practiced relative to the specific issue of office-based concussion management to provide best-practice level services to their patients. Participants should have learned and incorporated skills related to the history and physical, interventional procedures, and key decision-making (specifically those related to rehabilitation recommendations, academic and athletic restrictions, monitored return to activity protocols, and/or retirement recommendations).
