A Patient-Centered Approach to Concussion Care: CME & Webinar

Patient-Centered Approach to Concussion Care: CME & Webinar

A special program for emergency medicine and primary care physicians, as well as neurologists, physiatrists, and other healthcare professionals

In this webinar, Elizabeth Sandel, MD, a physiatrist and brain injury medicine physician, and Conor Gormally, co-founder of Concussion Alliance — a young man who has experienced several concussions — present a patient-centered care approach for emergency medicine and primary care physicians. Their recommendations are for expert, collaborative, and coordinated care that is accessible for patients in the acute phase after a concussion, and in the rehabilitation phase, if symptoms are persistent and chronic. They share many specific recommendations and provider and patient resources.

The program also features content and illustrations from Dr. Sandel’s book, Shaken Brain: The Science, Care, and Treatment of Concussion (Harvard University Press, 2020).
