Tackling Concussion in Rugby - a Conference and Workshop

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference - Public


After a successful engagement bid, I organised a conference aimed at discussing the issue of concussion in rugby. I invited leading speakers from academia, medicine, rugby, and safeguarding to deliver talks on the issue of concussion, how they work with concussion and/or rugby in their jobs, and the future of rugby. I set up two workshops which discussed the current Head Injury Assessment in rugby, and a second which allowed companies who work in the world of concussion and rugby to discuss what they do and how they impact concussion in rugby.
