Abstract :

The study discusses trends in hospitalization for sport-related concussion in public and private hospitals in Victoria, Australia. Results show that the frequency and participation-adjusted rate of hospitalization for sport-related concussion, overall and across several sports, increased substantially over a period of nine years, suggesting the need to make prevention of head injury in sport a population health priority.
