SportAUS Game Plan Overview
The Government recently released its findings from the Senate Inquiry into Concussions and Repeated Head Trauma in Contact Sport (if interested you can read more about it here).
A key recommendation was improving community awareness and education on concussion and repeated head trauma.
With this in mind, we thought it would be an opportune time to update you on Connectivity’s 15-minute free, online Sport-Related Concussion Short Course.
We have recently updated the course with new guidelines from the 6th Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport.
We encourage and welcome you to share our updated Sport-Related Concussion Short Course with your local sporting communities and sporting service providers to help educate and raise awareness on this important and often misunderstood injury.
Who should complete the Sport-Related Concussion Short Course?
Everyone! Coaches, umpires or referees, parents, volunteers, or anyone who may witness or need to know about sport-related concussion.
How long does it take to complete?
The Sport-Related Concussion Short Course provides interactive, engaging learning that takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. The course also includes lived experience stories, which are optional viewing.
What will I learn in the Sport-Related Concussion Short Course?
The course covers the essentials of understanding and managing concussion, the importance of seeking medical care, and the different paths to recovery. There is also a range of fact sheets and downloadable resources, including advice on returning to sport, school and work following a concussion.
How much does it cost?
The Sport-Related Concussion Short Course is free to complete. At the end, there is the opportunity to invest in a personalised certification of completion for $10. If you have already completed the course, you will be able to complete the updated course and re-download your certificate.
