Reflections on International Consensus Statements on Concussion in Sport
We have a new paper reflecting on the shortcomings of existing international consensus statements on concussion in sport. Published by the Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics and led by Stephen Casper, it is free to access.
Abstract: Five international consensus statements on concussion in sports have been published. This commentary argues that there is a strong need for a new approach to them that foregrounds public health expertise and patient-centered guidance. Doing so will help players, parents, and practitioners keep perspective about these potentially life-altering injuries especially when they recur.
