GAA & UPMC Concussion Network Training Event - Saturday 10th November, Croke Park Dublin

Building on the national concussion symposia of the last two years, the recently launched UPMC Concussion Network and the GAA have created a training programme that will focus on diagnosis and evaluation tools for concussion, identifying types of concussions, and treatment and rehabilitation methods. The event, which will take place on Saturday, November 10, 2018 in Croke Park will adopt the “train-the-trainer” model in which GAA team doctors support the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion experts in delivering presentations, workshops and case study reviews.

This training event is specifically designed for inter-county team doctors and physiotherapists from Senior, U20/U21 and Minor Gaelic Football and Hurling squads, as well as those involved with Senior Inter-County Ladies Football and Camogie panels.. An application for CPD points has been made to the RCSI Faculty of Sports Medicine. The cost of the training event is being borne by the GAA.


To register for this event please complete this registration form. You will receive confirmation of your attendance within 7 days of your application.

Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis to doctors, physios or other medical professionals involved in Inter-County Gaelic Games. Preference will be given to those who have been involved in Senior Inter-County backroom teams in 2018.

Those attending will be invited to submit case studies for discussion if they wish to do so.
The event is scheduled to run from 10am until circa 3pm on Saturday 10th November with registration from 9.15am.
