Increasing awareness of concussion in sport

16 May 2014
Health and industry experts gather in Perth this afternoon to discuss the latest research and strategies to tackle the issue of concussion in sport.
  • Government co-hosts Concussion in Sport Symposium in Perth today
  • Education a critical first step to managing the risk to players

Health and industry experts gather in Perth this afternoon to discuss the latest research and strategies to tackle the issue of concussion in sport.

Sport and Recreation Minister Terry Waldron said the ‘days of copping a knock on the head and playing on are over’.

“We’re actively working with industry and the major sports to ensure they have the right programs and policies in place to best protect their players,” Mr Waldron said.

The Concussion in Sport Symposium, at the Western Australian Basketball Centre, has been organised by Sports Medicine Australia (WA) in partnership with the State Government through the Department of Sport and Recreation.

Keynote speakers include sports physician Dr Michael Makdissi, who works with national and international teams, as well as the Hawthorn Football Club.

The Minister encouraged coaches, administrators, players and parents to learn more about the risks.

“We’re keen for everyone to learn the five R’s of concussion - recognise, removal, referral, rest and return to play.  This is all about managing the risk,” he said.

“With the right education and risk management programs in place, this issue should not be a barrier to participation or an active lifestyle.  The health and wellbeing of players of all ages and at all levels must be the number one priority.

Sports Medicine Australia (WA) received a $35,000 grant from the State Government for the Concussion in Sport Project, which includes the symposium and the creation of resources such as changeroom posters, a pocket concussion recognition tool, policy guidelines and information for players, parents, coaches and sports administrators.

Fact file

  • The Concussion in Sport Symposium will be held this afternoon (Friday, May 16) at the WA Basketball Centre in Floreat.  Register up to 11.30am on 9285 8033.
  • More information available on the Concussion in Sport Project website

    Thanks for sharing such an useful information, It helped me a lot.I have been looking for app that solves math problems. We have calculator in smartphones but we have to type each and every equation then we have to go through the math answer app. This app just takes the picture picture math and gives the solution math solution app which makes our work easy and smarter. I have gone through this photomath app for  andriod I liked it and try it photomath camera calculator you would like it. which is why owning a calculator seems like a necessity for students as math solver.But what if you could use your smartphone to solve equations by pointing the camera at the problem in your textbook instead of using a calculator as a camera calculator.This application photomath camera calculator may sound like it is simply helping kids cheat, but the photomath app for android also provides a step-by-step guide showing how each of the problems are solved math solver app. Parents can also use the photoMath app to jog their memory when teaching math to their kids.
