Full program description

This fifteen-hour distance based course is intended to present Doctors of Chiropractic with information on the current best practices in concussion management with the understanding that this body of knowledge is currently in a state of transition. The evidence base used to develop concussion management protocols is primarily based upon lower level scientific research. Most of what is considered best practice in concussion management is not based on best evidence, but rather consensus. This class attempts to provide an unbiased knowledge base to the learner by including consensus statements for numerous organizations without professional discrimination.
