Community Knowledge of Concussion in Sport
A concussion injury is challenging to detect. About 90% of concussions occur without losing consciousness, and nearly half of all concussions go unrecognised.
RMIT FC in collaboration with The University of Sydney invites you to take part in a research study about sport-related concussion. This study will help improve our understanding of concussion recognition and management in those persons most closely associated with players, as well as players themselves. This knowledge will be assessed with a questionnaire. We are looking for coaches, referees, umpires, sports trainers, physiotherapists, team managers, teachers, parents/guardians and players.
The findings will help to ensure players’ long-term health and welfare in sport and informed decisions that will make their game safer and more enjoyable for all to participate.
If you are interested in participating, please follow the link to the questionnaire.
When filling in your participant ID, please start the ID with MU, then follow the instructions.
If you would like to know more about the study, contact Dr Rhonda Orr.
