Concussion Management

Concussion Management Workshops

Concussion and its management is one of the most discussed topics in the field of sports medicine. SASMA in conjunction with Sports Physicians and Sports Doctors have designed a 1 hour presentation that aims to deliver the most up to date knowledge and tips for managing athletes with concussion, from the moment of the incident until their return to training and play.

Presented by a qualified Sports Doctor, this workshop gives community sports clubs and associations the opportunity to gain invaluable insights into the appropriate management strategies that can be adopted to reduce the impact concussion can have on athletes under their care.

A whole club/school approach to managing concussion is important for the health and well-being of your athletes and/or students. This workshop is ideal for:

  • Players
  • Parents
  • Coaches
  • Team Managers
  • Club Administrators
  • Teachers
  • Sports Trainers and other first aid/medical personnel
These workshops can be held at your facility.

For more information please contact SASMA on 08 8234 6369 or admin@sasma.com.au
