Australia needs a national concussion assessment, research and treatment centre.

Concussion is undoubtedly a major issue for society in general and sport, in particular, today, and health authorities agree its detection and management are critical to improving outcomes.

Likewise, independent research is the cornerstone to a new understanding of the disease and to formalising “Best Practice” management wherever and whenever it occurs.

As of 2019, there is not a single dedicated full-time Concussion Centre at any public or private hospital anywhere in the country, prompting an undeniable need for a viable model and its urgent implementation.
