CURRENT PROJECTS

The task force is updating the 1993 case definition of mild TBI. This project started in early 2019 and will be our primary focus in 2020. We have assembled an international, interdisciplinary Expert Consensus Panel and completed an initial survey of the Panel (manuscript in preparation). The task force is now preparing evidence statements and draft diagnostic criteria for the first round of voting as part of a web-based Delphi process. We aim to produce a case definition position paper for stakeholder feedback in the fall of 2020. ​
