Elkington LJ, Hughes DC. Med J Aust. 2017 Jan 16;206(1):46-50.

The Australian Institute of Sport and Australian Medical Association collaborated to release a position statement on concussion in sport. The document reviews what a concussion is, how to recognize a concussion, medical assessment of concussion, modifying factors, managing concussion, long-term consequences, and education. The authors also provide a list of key points for coaches, parents, and athletes as well as a list for medical practitioners – with a special emphasis on “If in doubt, sit them out.” The statement is accompanied by an overview of the literature, other concussion resources, and a list of concussion research priorities.
