Description

The UPMC Concussion Network, launched in June 2018, is a first-of-its-kind coalition of health care organisations that aims to shape the conversation about concussion injuries throughout Ireland. By providing education and access to standardised concussion testing and treatment, UPMC Concussion Network aims to create a strong public awareness of appropriate concussion management through educating athletes, parents, physicians, physiotherapists, and general practitioners on this complex but treatable injury.

On behalf of the UPMC Concussion Network, you are cordially invited to attend the UPMC Concussion Network Educational Workshop on the 9th November 2018 at WIT Arena, Carriganore, Co Waterford from 6.30pm – 8.30pm.

This is an excellent opportunity to meet and speak with the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion programme team, including internationally recognised concussion experts Dr Micky Collins, Dr Anne Mucha and Dr Anthony Kontos and learn more about UPMC's approach to concussion care.

3 CPD Points will be awarded for your attendance at the workshop. Please register your interest here.

It is recommended that you take the time to view the attached video courses provided by the UPMC Clinical Team to give you an overview of the UPMC treatment model in advance of attending the concussion education session.
