Concussion Summit registration now open

Now in its seventh year, the 2018 Concussion Summit, presented by the Queen's Center for Sports Medicine, will cover a range of topics including implementation of Return to Learn and early Return to Activity, as well as early specialization in sports, overuse injuries and possible preventative measures.

HCAMP has reported that an average of 1,000 concussions annually to Hawaii's high school athletes over the last seven years. HCAMP has also reported an average high school athlete takes more than three weeks to recover from a concussion.

The featured faculty will provide research-based evidence and discuss techniques to help decrease this recovery period through the implementation of Return to Learn in the classroom and early Return to Activity, along with concussion assessments as determined by the 2017 Berlin Concussion in Sports Group Consensus Statement.

The Summit has been expanded this year to include half a day dedicated to early specialization in sports, overuse injuries and possible preventative measures. Attendees will be provided with the most up-to-date treatments and be inspired to start using these techniques immediately.

This conference has broad appeal to physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists and other healthcare professionals.
