SNS 11th Annual Concussion Symposium Guest Room (hilton.com)
The goal of the symposium is to provide state-of-the-art research and clinical information related to the science and practice of athlete brain health and mental health, sports concussion and concussion management from multidisciplinary and internationally recognized faculty. Specific topics of the 2023 SNS Symposium will include developing inclusive sports organizations, cultural and bilingual considerations for assessing neurocognitive functions, and science and policy for transgender athletes. Biomarkers in concussion, clinical and neurobiological aspects of recovery, and later-in-life neurological diseases in former athletes will also be discussed. Finally, ethical obligations in working with sport-related concussion and the psychological frameworks for working with athletes 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.
This educational curriculum is intended to target an intermediate to advanced audience of clinicians and researchers including psychologists, neuropsychologists, physicians, athletic trainers, nurses, and physical, occupational, and speech therapists.
After completion of the activity, participants should be able to:
1. Demonstrate knowledge of the difference between clinical recovery vs neurobiological
recovery from concussion.
