Course Description

Awareness of the severity of concussions has been on the rise for the last couple of decades, due to the major impact that this injury has on the lives of athletes who have spoken out about the issue. In order to understand the situation in its fullness, one has to first know what a concussion really is and how it can develop into something truly severe.

This course provides a detailed look into the impact of concussions on a person's brain and their lifestyle, with a look into the symptoms, causes, risk factors, and much more. An in-depth exploration of all aspects regarding concussions will help provide a deeper understanding of this injury that has affected so many lives. Continuing to raise awareness and promote prevention is the key to reducing the number of concussions and the even worse injuries and conditions that arise as a result. If more people understand concussions fully, then they can readily recognize when there has been such a brain injury and how to react efficiently in this situation.

This course's goal is to provide that ability to recognize and understand a concussion, in order to aid in the recovery of a hurt individual who may be suffering from a traumatic brain injury.
