Calgary, CA

Thank you for your interest in the R2P™ Advanced Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome Calgary 2019. However at this time, registration for this event has closed.

Event Details

R2P Advanced Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome outlines the R2P PATH, an evidence-based approach to concussion rehabilitation.  Participants will learn to:

  • Apply key principles of sub-symptom threshold progressions to vestibular, visual, and exercise therapy.
  • Assess and manage post-traumatic headaches using a unique algorithm.

Interactive learning is emphasized through hands-on practice and case studies.  This course is appropriate for Physiotherapists, Athletic Therapists, Chiropractors, Occupational Therapists, and Physicians. Skills learned can immediately be applied in clinical practice.

Prerequisite:  R2P Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome

Course Outline

8:30 Advanced Neuroimaging and Fluid Biomarkers

What is the role of advanced neuroimaging techniques in the diagnosis of concussion?  Can a blood test predict recovery?

9:00 Post-Traumatic Headache

Learn to differentiate types of post-traumatic headache using an evidence-based algorithm and standardized history taking.  Understand how to apply best practice treatment techniques.

10:30 Sleep-Wake Disturbances

What is the impact of sleep-wake disturbances on recovery?  How do you assess sleep disturbances?  What are recommended treatment techniques?

11:00 Post-Traumatic Fatigue

How do you differentiate between cognitive and physical fatigue?  Learn best-practice management strategies, including planning and pacing.

Contact The Host


Jacquie has over 20 years of experience working with individuals from a recreational level to Olympic athletes.  During more than fifteen years of clinical and on-field experience at the University of Toronto with the concussion clinic and research staff, Jacquie treated a high volume of complex concussion patients, with a focus on return to play using a continuum of care that included preseason questionnaires, acute on-field assessment of injured athletes, management of acute and chronic symptoms, and return to play exercise progressions. As well, she completed her vestibular competency training at Emory University.  She has been a clinical instructor at the University of Toronto, Department of Physical Therapy, and past chair of the Sport Physiotherapy Canada (SPC), Ontario. Her doctoral research is focused on the development of a functional assessment outcome measure for individuals with persistent post-concussion symptoms.  Her work seeks to measure the impact of concussion in order to inform clinical management based on patient priorities.
