Welcome to the UPMC Concussion Network

The UPMC Concussion Network is revolutionising how concussion is approached in Ireland through education and development of easy access pathways to viable, standardised concussion testing and treatment.

UPMC’s internationally recognised Concussion Management Programme is the foundation for developing consensus-driven and evidence-based treatment pathways in Ireland.

By standardising treatment within a coalition of healthcare providers, we will create strong public awareness that concussions, when managed properly, are treatable injuries.

ImPACT® Concussion Testing

ImPACT® is an exclusive, state-of-the-art, software-based neurocognitive assessment tool co-developed by UPMC concussion specialists.

ImPACT® evaluates and documents multiple aspects of a patient’s neurocognitive state, including brain processing speed, memory, reaction time and visual motor skills.

Working closely with medical professionals, UPMC provides specialised training and ongoing support for its Concussion Network specialists, enabling them to provide detailed personalised treatment plans for their patients.

Our Concussion Specialists

Concussion Diagnosis and Management

The UPMC Concussion Network specialists create a personalised plan of treatment for each patient they work with.

A truly unique approach to concussion rehabilitation, each personalised plan is based on active treatment and continual re-examination.

Here at the UPMC Concussion Network, we believe no concussion injury is alike. The combination of sophisticated assessment tools and unbeatable clinical expertise ensures each patient is treated to the highest standards, with the methods suitable to their individual condition.
