Paper on Concussion and long-term cognitive impairment among professional or elite sport-persons

04.03.2020

Professor Damien McElvenny, Principal Epidemiologist at IOM, is one of the co-authors of a new paper, entitled "Concussion and long-term cognitive impairment among professional or elite sport-persons: a systematic review", published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry"

Introduction to the paper:

Understanding whether concussion in sport is associated with worsening cognitive function in later life will likely have immediate repercussion on sports concussion prevention and management  policy

and sporting rules and regulations. This systematic review aims to summarise the evidence on the association between concussion sustained by professional/elite athletes and long-term cognitive impairment.
