Barker Institute Twilight Series - Concussion in Sport

 

Every week there are articles about concussion in the media. Sporting organisations & governing bodies around the world are often seen to be struggling to keep up with the growing needs of protecting their athletes.

In conjunction with the Barker sports department, we invite parents, carers and students to hear Dr Corey Cunningham of the Barker Concussion Clinic present around  concussion in sport. Dr Cunningham will explain how the Concussion Clinic at Barker is protecting students from secondary concussion. He will also share advice for parents of Barker sportspeople how to best support their children through the sports program. 

Barker established a dedicated Concussion Clinic in 2013 and is a leader in the field of school-based concussion management. Hear how the clinic at Barker provides a return to play Concussion Management Protocol. As a result the clinic is proud to celebrate zero secondary concussions for any Barker students in 2018. 

The evening will feature a demonstration of the online Headsmart test. This test is a requirement for Barker students as part of the concussion management guidelines.
