Sport Related Concussions
Length: 16 Weeks
CER 500 Sport Related Concussions – The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that up to 3.8 million concussions occur in sports-related activities in the United States annually (Langlois, Rutland-Brown, & Wald, 2006). With millions of young athletes experiencing the effects of sport-related concussions each year, the need to effectively prevent, diagnose, and manage concussions is a major priority. With concussions being labeled as a significant public health issue, there is an immediate need for concussion awareness, training, and management programs across the globe. Widespread dissemination of knowledge has the potential to decrease the rate of concussions occurring in sports, as well as improve the current guidelines in place. This course provides an in-depth review of the risks, prevention, recognition, treatment, and management of sport-related concussions. This course also discusses the importance of awareness and education strategies for coaches, athletes, parents, administrators, and health care professionals.
