Meeting Focus:

Concussion and mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) has garnered much interest as it is common, utilises significant healthcare resources and repetitive

exposure may be a risk factor for dementia (e.g. chronic traumatic encephalopathy - CTE). This conference will cover aspects of concussion/mTBI including

its epidemiology; acute and chronic clinical features, mechanisms and management; biomarkers; and actuarial considerations of CTE.
