Sports Medicine Experts Present Four Sport-Related Concussion Studies at National Meeting

Our sports medicine team cares for hundreds of young athletes with sport-related concussions each year. They invite patients to participate in projects that aim to gather more information and lead to changes in the recognition, diagnosis, management and recovery of sport-related concussions in children and athletes.

In addition to original projects on the condition, our team are active contributors in regional and national projects, such as:

  • Pediatric Research in Sports Medicine (PRiSM) Society Research Interest Group on Sport-Related Concussion – a collaborative and multidisciplinary group that discusses the gaps and opportunities in pediatric sport-related concussion research.
  • Sport Concussion Outcomes in Pediatrics (SCOPE) - a multicenter study group made up of members of PRiSM Society who are collaborating on specific concussion projects.
  • North Texas Concussion Network Prospective Registry (ConTex) - a large registry including patients from several organizations including a collaborative effort with our partners at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
Results from several sport-related research projects in which the team provided a formal or informal leadership role were selected to be shared by our medical staff at the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) 2022 Annual Meeting.
  • Shane M. Miller, M.D., Pediatric Sports Medicine Physician
    • Predicting Persistent Postconcussive Symptoms in a Multicenter Sample of Youth Athletes Using the 5P Risk Score
  • Jane S. Chung, M.D., Pediatric Sports Medicine Physician
    • Anxiety History and Injury Characteristics Among Young Athletes Who Did and Did Not Receive a CT Scan After a Concussion
  • Jacob C. Jones, M.D., RMSK, Pediatric Sports Medicine Physician
    • Concussion Trends in Pediatric Athletes Presenting to Outpatient Clinics Pre- and Post-COVID-19 Pandemic Shutdown
    • Does Time of Season Impact Concussion Presentation and Outcomes in Youth Football Athletes?
Projects are selected for presentations at medical conferences based on the likelihood of contributing new information to the literature and clinical practice recommendations. The quality of the study or project is also considered with larger, prospective studies being rated more positively. “Our team is excited to be making a difference with these and many other efforts to understand, prevent and better care for pediatric sport-related concussions,” Sports Medicine research coordinator Hannah M. Worrall, M.P.H., CCRP, says. Worrall is co-author on each of these projects and makes a significant contribution for all concussion-related research at Scottish Rite for Children.
