The most recent study from the PAFIX project authored by Dr. Lauren Fortington, Dr. Dara Twomey and Professor Caroline Finch was published in latest issue of Injury Epidemiology. This paper used data collected during the PAFIX project and is focused specifically on concussion, with the aim to improve understanding of the injury within a community Australian football setting.
Through comprehensive injury surveillance during the PAFIX project a detailed description of the circumstances in which each concussion occurred is provided within the paper. These descriptions provide insight into situations within game-play that may lead to head injury that will be useful for their prevention and management.
