N3 - Neuroscience in the Clinic: Cutting Edge Concussion Data from the NCAA-DoD Grand Alliance

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Neuro Trauma, Critical Care, and Sports Neurology
Director(s): Christopher Giza MD, FAAN, Brian Hainline MD, FAAN
Description: To date, there is a paucity of data to define the natural history of concussion, and even less to define neurobiological recovery in concussion. The NCAA-DoD CARE Consortium is the largest, prospective, longitudinal study of concussion ever conducted. Athletes from all NCAA sports, including non-contact sports, are part of the study. In 1.5 years, approximately 20,000 student-athletes have been evaluated and over 1000 concussions have been evaluated. In this session, cutting-edge, newly released data will be presented, including advanced research data of neuroimaging, blood biomarkers, genomics and helmet/head sensors. Clinical and policy implications of the emerging data will be discussed.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to understand the study design and methodology of the study. They will further understand emerging concussion data, which will update current concussion knowledge. This emerging knowledge will provide a framework for managing concussion, developing concussion policy, and developing future research paradigms.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Systems-Based Practice
