Over the last 15 years, concussions have evolved into a significant public health problem in the U.S. and Canada. Between 2010 and 2015, diagnoses for concussion and post-concussion syndrome increased by 43% and 81%, respectively. Although most patients return to their baseline neurological health within two to four weeks of injury, 15-30% remain symptomatic beyond three months. These patients experience a variety of post-concussive sequelae that may be best managed in a multidisciplinary clinic with access to wide range of health care providers. These sequelae include chronic migrainous headache, vestibule-ocular dysfunction, sleep disruption, anxiety, depression, and problems with near vision (accommodation and convergence).
In this webinar, Dr. Bazarian will review the current state of multidisciplinary concussion clinics in the U.S. and Canada and discuss the range of strategies that can be used to bring a various health care providers together to care for patients with concussion.
