    Once you complete the readings and pass the 100-question exam, you can print a certificate for continuing education credits.

    Learning Objectives
    • Explain what factors are related to a delayed recovery after a concussion.
    • Explain the consequences of a concussion that may linger after symptoms resolve, such as elevated risk of lower extremity injury and impaired driving.
    • Be able to efficiently implement prevention programs that reduce the risk of head impacts and concussions in contact sports.
    • Be able to efficiently implement a concussion assessment protocol and account for extraneous factors that may bias assessment results.
    • Be able to discuss with patients their options for treating concussion symptoms.

    Jeffrey B. Driban, PhD, ATC, is an assistant professor in the division of rheumatology at Tufts University School of Medicine and a member of the special and scientific staff at Tufts Medical Center. The goal of his research is to explore novel biochemical and imaging markers to gain a better understanding of osteoarthritis pathophysiology and potential disease phenotypes.

    Driban received his bachelor’s degree in athletic training from the University of Delaware. During his doctoral training at Temple University, he focused on several aspects of osteoarthritis, including early pathophysiology in animal models, biochemical markers in joint fluid, systematic reviews of risk factors for osteoarthritis, and surveys of medication use among patients with osteoarthritis. In 2010, he began a postdoctoral research fellowship in the division of rheumatology at Tufts Medical Center, where he continued his focus on osteoarthritis and learned new assessment strategies in magnetic resonance imaging.

    Stephen Thomas, PhD, ATC, is an assistant professor at Temple University. Thomas received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in athletic training from Temple University. He then received his doctorate in biomechanics and movement science from the University of Delaware. Before working at Neumann University, Thomas had a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania in the department of orthopedic surgery and biomedical engineering, where he received a Ruth L. Kirschstein Research Grant from the National Institutes of Health. He has served on several national committees and is the chair of the research committee for the American Society of Shoulder and Elbow Therapists.

    Thomas continues to be active in research, participating as a manuscript reviewer for several peer-reviewed journals. He is on the executive board for Athletic Training and Sports Health Care. He was an ad hoc grant reviewer for the Eastern Athletic Trainers’ Association (EATA) and is the cofounder of Sports Medicine Research (, a website dedicated to the summary of sports medicine research. Thomas has written numerous peer-reviewed publications and abstracts on shoulder adaptations resulting from overhead throwing and on the basic science of rotator cuff injury and healing. He has also had several invited lectures on overhead throwing throughout the United States.
