5th International Consensus Conference on Concussion in Sport Part 1: Consensus Statement, tools and 4 systematic reviews

BJSM FREE: Consensus statement on concussion in sport—the 5th international conference on concussion in sport held in Berlin, October 2016

The 2017 Concussion in Sport Group (CISG) consensus statement is designed to build on the principles outlined in the previous statements and to develop further conceptual understanding of sport-related concussion (SRC) using an expert consensus-based approach. This document is developed for physicians and healthcare providers who are involved in athlete care, whether at a recreational, elite or professional level. While agreement exists on the principal messages conveyed by this document, the authors acknowledge that the science of SRC is evolving and therefore individual management and return-to-play decisions remain in the realm of clinical judgement.

From BJSM: Learning to share, sharing to learn

The role of sports medicine research is to help guide practitioners to implement evidence based strategies and while we can and should learn from research to enhance our practice, this is only one piece of the puzzle.
