RFU Concussion Study04.07.2016
We are pleased to be a partner in the ongoing sports concussion study on behalf of the English Rugby Football Union. More than 200 former players have agreed to take part.
The study is being led by London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the Institute of Occupational Medicine, Queen Mary University of London, University College London and Oxford University. The Drake Foundation will be funding £450,000 to the study.
The study has the support of prominent current players who are concerned about the accumulating long term health impact of concussion and this study will begin to fill the gap in understanding within rugby and may lead to further interest across other sports which typically have very different impact behaviours.
