The Art & Science of Concussion: Translating Data Into Concussion Prevention looks at how science is guiding decision-making with respect to concussion management, as well as discusses the future in this area and where the focus should be placed. The DVD explores the concussion-related cumulative risks for youth athletes and suggests that while participation in athletics can be safe, everyone needs to do a better job of helping to ensure that sport is as injury-free as possible. The DVD also reviews the influence of an athlete suffering multiple traumas. In addition, the DVD details what is believed to be known about concussions, what is not known where medical and sport professionals have been in this regard, and where they might be going in the future.

Among the topics covered:
  • Cumulative risks for youth athletes
  • Longitudinal perspective on MTBI: influence of multiple trauma
  • Longitudinal perspective on TBI: future directions
  • Helmet testing: challenges
  • STAR football helmet rating system advantages and limitations
  • Impact magnitude by play type position
  • Role of the cervical muscles?
  • Conclusion: making sport safer
