AAPM&R is well-positioned to lead this effort as physiatrists are uniquely qualified to care for brain injury patients. PM&R physicians understand the complexities of this disease, are experts in designing comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plans and work as integral members of the care team who treat these patients.
The panel is chaired by Dr. Arthur De Luigi, DO, FAAPMR and includes some of the leading minds in concussion treatment; with member representation from: AAPM&R, American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American Academy of Neurology (AAN), American Academy of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), American Medical Society of Sports Medicine (AMSSM) and American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM).
