Recognition and Management of Concussion in Sport


Over recent years there has been elevated public awareness of sport-related concussion and increased focus on the importance of diagnosing and managing the condition promptly, safely and appropriately.

The Australian Sports Medicine Collaborative (ASMC) believes there is a need for clear, unequivocal and reliable information to be readily accessible to all members of the community.

The ASMC seek to ensure that all General Practitioners have rapid access to information to increase their understanding of sport-related concussion and to assist in the delivery of best-practice medical care.
