Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are often referred to as the ‘silent epidemic’ because many injuries go unrecognised(Reference Rusnak1). Epidemiological data estimates the incidence of TBI at 27.08 million cases annually, with age-standardised incidence rates at 369 per 100,000 population(Reference James, Theadom and Ellenboge2). Traumatic brain in...

Background: Concussion in sport is an ongoing global concern. The head injury assessment (HIA) by the field of play is acknowledged as the first step in recognising and identifying concussion. While previous systematic literature reviews have evaluated the sensitivity of side-line screening tools and assessment protocols, no systematic review has e...

Rugby union is a field sport that is played at amateur and professional levels by male and female players globally. One of the most prevalent injury risks associated with the sport involves tackle collisions with opposition players. This suggests that a targeted injury reduction strategy could focus on the tackle area in the game. In amateur rugby...

Education initiatives can help improve knowledge, attitudes towards concussion and increase reporting of this ‘invisible injury’. While interventions tend to increase knowledge, they display mixed results for attitudes towards concussion, are often lengthy and require an expert to present to a target cohort. This study aimed to develop an easily ac...
