R2P Advanced Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome outlines the R2P PATH, an evidence-based approach to concussion rehabilitation. Participants will learn to apply key principles of sub-symptom threshold progressions to vestibular, visual, and exercise therapy, and assess and manage post-traumatic headaches. Consolidate learning through hands-on practice and small group case studies. Skills learned can be immediately applied in practice.
