Goal and Learning Outcomes

The purpose of our Concussion/mTBI program is to inform healthcare providers about the incidence, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of sports-related concussions and the potential for serious long-term outcomes such as dementia. Completion of this program will enable the healthcare practitioner to:

  • Design and Implement a Concussion Treatment Program
  • Design and conduct a brain and vestibular rehabilitation program
  • Design evidence-based treatment plans
  • Utilize a current evidence-based examination process to quantify brain function and human performance
  • Define sports-related concussions and the sports in which they are most often found
  • Describe the immediate and long-term symptoms of sports-related concussions
  • Discuss expert recommendations for preventing/managing sports-related concussions
  • Prepare health care professionals with advanced knowledge and skills in diagnosis and treatment of Concussion/mTBI.

“As after many Carrick Institute learning experiences I feel like my eyes have been opened. Things that previously have slipped by unnoticed now jump out at me. I was blind but now I see. Sometimes it’s now so apparent it startles me.”
