UCLA Steve Tisch BrainSPORT Program: Concussion Champions
Activity Details
Activity Name: UCLA Steve Tisch BrainSPORT Program: Concussion Champions
Needs Assessment:

The UCLA Steve Tisch BrainSPORT Concussion Champions CME course will prepare UCLA providers with the tools needed to effectively diagnose and manage youth concussions, as well as provide guidance on the appropriate referrals of complex cases to a multidisciplinary concussion program. Best practices for effective care for individuals with concussion/mild TBI include providing proper education and anticipatory guidance, not utilizing a single test to make the diagnosis of concussion, protecting the athlete from repeat injury, avoiding prolonged absence from school and individualizing and monitoring the concussion recovery plan.

Participants will walk away with templates, forms and guidance on properly completing medical forms required by schools for children to return to school and go back to their respective sports. Attendees will also gain hands-on experience through our interactive sessions.

Course Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Serve as "Concussion Champions" at each respective clinic and be current on sports-concussion management for athletes.
  • Relate the risks and benefits of sports participation to families, including the relative risks for concussion in different sports and different conditions.
  • Use a multimodal clinical concussion assessment test battery that may include symptoms, cognition (including computerized testing), balance, reaction time and number reading.
  • Develop an individualized management plan for youths with concussion, including return to school, return to physical activity and return to contact risk.
  • Relate to families the potential risks of repetitive concussions based upon peer-reviewed publications and yet also be aware of current information circulated through the media.
  • Appropriately refer complex patients, initiate proper treatment and understand circumstances for recommending retirement from a particular sport.
