dc.description.abstractThis paper aims to use cost-benefit analysis to evaluate sport-related concussion protocol set by the Concussion in Sport Group (CISG) that was first implemented in the early 2000s. Current published literature is addressed to develop a foundation of what has already been assessed. An overview of the International Conference on Concussion in Sport at its first conference in 2001 that was held in Vienna, Austria, and its fourth conference in 2012 that was held in Zurich, Switzerland, are discussed in detail. The fifth conference, held in Berlin, Germany, took place late October 2016 and findings have not been published yet. Biomechanics and long term implications of concussions will be briefly discussed before assessing best practices. Conclusions will be based on costs of implementing practices set at the fourth conference in Zurich, Switzerland by the Concussion in Sports Group (CISG). The paper concludes with final remarks about the lack of information available and future directions/recommendations that would have been useful in the construction of this paper. inen_US
