Description

Canadian Neurological Sciences Federation This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and approved by the Canadian Neurosurgical Society. You may claim a maximum of 7.5 hours. This Program was co-developed with the Canadian Concussion Centre and CNSS and was planned to achieve scientific integrity, objectivity and balance.

​Concussions have been a hot topic for a number of years in various fields. This special, full-day event is where cutting-edge research and legal advancements come together. Clinicians address scientific developments on the spectrum of concussion disorders and its diverse physical and cognitive symptoms. Personal injury lawyers and insurance representatives discuss the impact of these new findings on recent case law and damages awards, while judges give their invaluable perspectives from the bench about concussion claims. And you won't want to miss former Chief Justice Roy McMurtry in conversation with Ken Dryden about concussions in the law today. For those who work in the area of personal injury, insurance, sports law, workers' compensation, or in any of the many related practice areas, this symposium is a must.
