   Alicia Sufrinko, Clinical Neuropsychologist, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Sports Medicine Concussion Program

Session Type: Educational Session

In this session, the presenter discusses the conceptual framework for how to look at an injury and assess the different clinical profiles that health-care professionals are learning about. She’ll also talk conceptually about the assessment findings that lead to certain clinical profiles. In addition, the presenter discusses the treatments needed for the clinical profile that we see with concussion. Finally, attendees learn how they can use clinical profiles as a road map to this type of injury and understand how the heterogeneity of concussion is essential to treatment. The presenter explains how different assessment findings may lead to establishing clinical profiles, and how these profiles predicate clinical rehabilitation and treatment.

Learning Objectives:
Describe how to conceptualize concussion as a heterogeneous entity
Discuss assessment findings that help establish targeted clinical profiles for concussion
Explain how clinical management, treatment and rehabilitative directives are dictated by these clinical profiles
