The Concussion in Sport Group recently published its highly anticipated fifth consensus statement on sports-related concussion. The latest iteration features a new organizational format—the “11 Rs” and has input from a wider range of health care professionals, organizations, and experts in the field from both the sport concussion area and from related areas outside of sport. The stated objective of this current document is to “build on the principles outlined in previous statements and develop further conceptual understanding of sports-related concussion.” Its intended audience is “physicians and health care providers who are involved in athlete care, whether at a recreational, elite, or professional level.” We review significant updates including recommendations for sideline evaluation, return to play, and return to learn in athletes with sports-related concussion.
