Head trauma inquiry sees larger role for GPs

Press/Media: Expert Comment


General practice could be in the running for a new item number covering longer consults for people with concussion and repeated head trauma, as a new report into sports and brain injury zeroes in on chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)...

Professor Mark Morgan, chair of the RACGP quality care expert committee, told the inquiry that given GPs will only see a patient with a traumatic brain injury once a year, having rapid access to relevant information and knowing where to look to for it was more appropriate than mandating additional GP training.
