Congratulations to Roger Zemek and team for their publication on the derivation and validation of a clinical risk score for persistent postconcussion symptoms. This important study received the attention of the Federal Health Minister (Jane Philpott), and we are told that ‘PERC’ was mentioned as a main contributor to the study’s success!

 

Great work everyone on this ground breaking study on concussion. Citation and media links below.
