Concussion in Sport – Berlin Consensus Statement
- RRS Education
Concussion is certainly a hot topic, with high levels of interest from clinicians, patients, researchers and sporting organizations. Things are changing fast in this area of practice, and as evidence-informed clinicians, we must stay up to date on the highest quality, latest information from the perspective of emerging research and real-world clinical management of concussion. That’s exactly what this new consensus statement does, from the highly-respected Concussion in Sport Group (CISG), which met in Berlin to discuss the literature related to sport-related concussion (SRC), develop further conceptual understanding of SRC and build on the principles of the previous consensus statements. The authors acknowledge that the evidence related to SRC is evolving and note that decisions regarding management and return-to-play (RTP) require individualized clinical judgement. It is intended that this document would be a resource for those involved in the care of athletes, but the concepts can apply to non-athletes as well, of course.
