“The 2017 Concussion in Sport Group (CISG) consensus statement is designed to build on the principles outlined in the previous statements and to develop further conceptual understanding of sport-related concussion (SRC) using an expert consensus-based approach. This document is developed for physicians and healthcare providers who are involved in athlete care, whether at a recreational, elite or professional level.” The document is a very valuable resource for clinicians.

A summary of the methods is available for review.

An article on the Child Sport Concussion Assessment Tool 5th Edition is also available.
An article on the Concussion Recognition Tool 5th Edition is also available.
