The 2020 SNS Symposium in Dallas has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
Stay tuned for details on a virtual CE symposium.
The goal of the symposium is to provide state-of-the-art research and clinical information related to the science and practice of sports concussion and concussion management from multidisciplinary and internationally-recognized faculty. Specific topics of the 2020 SNS Symposium will include a focus on pediatric concussion, including assessment, management, and the epidemiology of concussion in youth sports. Comorbid factors that may influence recovery across the life span, such as sleep or vestibular dysregulation, age, and psychological and resiliency factors will also be discussed. Finally, practical business practice and ethical obligations when working with sport-related concussion will be addressed. During the symposium, practitioners, researchers, and students will be able to expand their experience, knowledge, and skills when working with sport-related concussion.
Target Audience: This educational curriculum is intended to target an intermediate to advanced audience of clinicians and researchers including physicians, psychologists, neuropsychologists, athletic trainers, nurses, and physical, occupational, and speech therapists.
Learning Objectives for the Conference Program: After completion of the activity, participants should be able to:
- Explain the steps necessary to develop a regional sports concussion registry.
