At UCLA, our approach to traumatic brain injury (TBI) is three-pronged. We provide clinical care, pursue both clinical and basic science research, and are involved in community outreach and education. Clinically, we have a multidisciplinary approach to sport-related concussion and pediatric TBI. UCLA Steve Tisch BrainSPORT Program focuses on concussions sustained during athletics and recreation. SPORT stands for Sports concussion Prevention Outreach Research and Treatment program. It is a comprehensive concussion assessment and care program, providing participating local schools with the same level of care provided to our collegiate athletes, in keeping with the most recent (2013) evidence-based standards for concussion management. In addition, our clinic provides care for children with all severities of traumatic brain injury, and any persistent neurological and/or cognitive issues including headache, school difficulties, seizures, etc. Our patients can receive comprehensive neurological exams and/or brief pencil and paper neuropsychological testing with a licensed neuropsychologist. For our athletes, we also provide computerized neurocognitive testing at baseline and follow-up. We also offer educational sessions for the community-at-large, athletic trainers, school administrators, and other physicians in both small-scale lectures and large symposia.
