Individuals with concussion and persistent symptoms after concussion are increasingly seeking treatment to assist in their recovery. There is improved evidence informed information and guidelines about treatment of acute concussion but treatment of individuals with persistent symptoms remains challenging. This course will focus on comprehensive management of concussion for the acute and persistent patient population including exercise, vision, vestibular treatment ideas, guidance return to activity and concrete strategies for symptom management. Rehab professionals will have a better understanding of why patients have persistent symptoms post-concussion and be given practical knowledge and tools they need to immediately implement assessment and treatment strategies into their clinical practice and improve outcomes for their patients.
The Level 2 Concussion Management Workshop builds on the information taught in the Level 1 course and aims to review and apply the treatment techniques to different complex case studies. There will be some small and large group discussion to share knowledge and enhance learning and problem solving. The learning goals of the Level 2 course are to be able to organize and classify assessment findings to help determine effective treatment strategies and to prioritize the order of treatment to improve outcomes. There is a review of the latest evidence with a focus on the areas of vision & vestibular rehabilitation, active rehabilitation, sleep and return to work.
The focus of the course is on treatment of persistent symptoms post concussion.
The Concussion Management Workshop is a pre-requisite for attending the Level 2 course.
