Research output: Contribution to journalMagazine ArticleProfessional


In two earlier Play by the Rules articles, a call to action was made for governments to take a more proactive and coordinated role in addressing sport-related concussion concerns (Greenhow, Play by the Rules Magazine issue 22 and issue 29). The heightened risks associated with these concerns continue to attract attention in the media, sports administration, and medical research and clinical practice in Australia. From publicly available sources, the regulation of sport-related concussion remains one primarily entrusted to sporting organisations in Australia to self-regulate. But things appear to be shifting slowly, with governments starting to recognise the vital role they play.
