Course Description: Concussion injuries are increasing throughout the population and may lead to impairments in neurocognitive function. Determining how to best manage patients with concussion consists of a multidisciplinary approach. This course will describe management strategies from multiple healthcare professionals and will provide guidance concerning how to screen, treat, and refer appropriately to improve functional outcomes for patients s/p concussion.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be better able to:

  • Understand what a comprehensive subjective history is – from patient and caregiver, screening all systems, environmental, and social scenarios that may impede clinical care and outcomes.
  • Understand what a comprehensive physical examination is or recognizes concussion signs and symptoms that may lead to an appropriate diagnosis and/or referral.
  • Demonstrate specific interventions to address specific concussion trajectories: ocular, vestibular, post-traumatic, cervical pain, cognitive-fatigue, anxiety/mood issues, etc.
  • Appreciate the interdisciplinary model necessary to appropriately care for the chronic post-concussive patient, and be able to identify which patients would benefit from referral to other health care providers.
  • Evaluate a patient’s readiness for return activity after a concussion.

  • Medical Director of NCH Inpatient Acute Rehab Care Unit and Physiatrist – Rahul Sharma, MD
