Concussion in Sport Group’s position that causal relationship has not yet been demonstrated between chronic traumatic encephalopathy and sport concussions is controversial
Head injuries and sport: confusion, anger and lots of difficult questions
In all the confusion, you probably missed that the sixth International Conference on Concussion in Sport was supposed to take place this week. It was postponed for a year because of the pandemic but the delay didn’t make news in the way other rearrangements did. The conference matters a lot to a few, but goes almost unnoticed by everyone else, although it is one of the more influential sports events. Every four years a group of 30-40 experts gather to review the latest research. They’re called the Concussion in Sport Group (CISG) and they summarise the findings in a document called the Consensus Statement on Concussion In Sport. You may not realise it, but if you watch or play sport then it affects you.
If your child suffered a concussion while they were playing a club game, then it’s probable they were diagnosed using a tool called the Child SCAT5, which was designed at the last conference in Berlin in 2016. If you’re a rugby fan wondering why the Italy scrum-half, Callum Braley, isn’t available to play England on Saturday or a Cricket fan wondering why Cricket Australia made Steve Smith sit out Australia’s recent ODI series against England, it’s because World Rugby and the ICC follow protocols designed in accordance with the CISG consensus, which the ICC describes as “the current best benchmark practice”. CISG has done good and important work improving the protocols for how to handle head injuries.
