Gender Issues and Sport-related Concussion

Arlington, VA US
October 9, 2014


 

DCoE Webinar Series (TBI): October 2014
 

Date/Time: October 9, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that approximately 1.6-3.8 million sport and recreational concussions occur annually in the United States. Epidemiological studies conducted to understand sex differences between female and male athletes with respect to sport injury incidence and prevalence have shown that female athletes at both the collegiate and high school levels are at a greater risk for incurring a concussion. In addition, females have been found to report slightly longer concussion symptoms and cognitive impairments. The empirical findings on sex differences in sport-related concussion warrant clinical considerations when assessing concussion among male and female athletes.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Describe current research regarding gender issues and sport-related concussion
  • Identify sports at high risk for concussion at both the high school and collegiate level
  • Articulate gender differences in post-concussion symptoms and concussion outcomes
  • Discuss the importance of concussion management for male and female athletes
