With the growing number of recreational and sport related concussions occurring each year, the need for consensus of care for this patient population has also grown. The research community has attempted to answer this need with a plethora of publications published in this field over the last several years; however, recommendations can often be confusing, incomplete and even contradictory. This session will provide the tools the pediatric-focused NP will need to manage adolescent and pediatric concussion injuries competently and successfully.
