Dr Antonio Di Ieva to present at Sports Concussion forum

Dr Antonio Di Ieva will be presenting at the upcoming Sports Concussion Clinic at Macquarie University. The workshop will be held on Friday 10th November and will bring together experts from sports medicine, psychology, law and neuroscience as well as sports professionals in order to develop a strategic focus that will lead to the development of a concussion research group. 

In Australia, rugby league, rugby union and AFL as well as other contact sports are currently re-examining the way in which head injuries are monitored and treated. The research community has an important role to play in this and will be heavily involved in the development and refinement of objective methodologies for determining return to play protocols and developing evidence-based concussion management guidelines. Concussion in sport is a very visible and at times an emotive issue in the general media, the time for rigorous and open examination of the issues surrounding concussion has arrived.

The workshop will include some key note addresses, group discussions and informal talks. Registration is free. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
