Brief Description

R2P Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome offers a systematic and objective approach to differentiate cervical, vestibular, visual, mental health, and autonomic causes of persistent post-concussion symptoms. Learn how to prioritize treatment using an evidence-based series of algorithms and the R2P SCORE. Whether you are an experienced therapist, or new to practice, learn to integrate current evidence and clinical reasoning to solidify your skills in the context of concussion. Consolidate learning through hands-on practice and small group case studies.

This course is appropriate for Physiotherapists, Athletic Therapists, Chiropractors, Occupational Therapists, Kinesiologists, and Physicians. Skills learned can immediately be applied in clinical practice.

Course Outline

8:30am - Diagnosis of Post-Concussion Syndrome

Why do some individuals recover quickly, while others have persistent symptoms for months or years?

9:00am - R2P SCORE

Understand which systems may contribute to persistent post-concussion symptoms and how to categorize them using a series of algorithms. Learn how to prioritize a systematic treatment approach using the R2P SCORE.

9:30am - Cervical Spine

Diagnostic criteria for cervicogenic headache and dizziness. Understand the important components to include in the neurological and musculoskeletal exam.

3:30pm - Putting it all together

Consolidate learning through discussion and small group case studies using the R2P SCORE.
