Sport related concussion can affect athletes participating in many sports and at all levels, from grassroots to elite. In recent years, there has been increasing concern about the long term health impacts of concussion and the potential under-reporting of incidents, which may lead to athletes being undiagnosed, untreated, and potentially suffering greater long-term impacts on their health and wellbeing.

This page aims to assist sports medicine professionals, athletes, parents, coaches, administrators and support personnel to understand and maintain awareness of relevant policies, guidelines, insights and emerging research in this area.
