A meeting of 37 concussion clinicians and researchers this week in Pittsburgh described as unprecedented by UPMC, but viewed with skepticism by others produced a consensus that prolonged rest, a popular treatment option for concussions, does not aid recovery and can actually worsen it.

..

Experts here in Pittsburgh recognized how critical a need it was for us to bring experts together and finally make this statement, Dr. David Okonkwo of UPMC said. This is paradigm shifting. People may underestimate the impact of this, but on a global basis, every single person who sustains a concussion is told prolonged rest.

..

Now, you have 37 of the best and brightest minds in the field saying Thats wrong and, in fact, concussions are treatable and active treatments are superior to doing nothing.

..

The experts reached those conclusions during the two-day UPMC Concussion Conference, Targeted Evaluation and Active Management. While no sweeping protocols were recommended, conference attendees believe this consensus will help research move forward.

..

The summit, however, did not come without some level of doubt about what it could accomplish.

..

There were concerns about conflicts of interest. UPMC sponsored the summit, and the health giant has received funding in the past from the NFL, and several of the doctors present have a connection to a sports team or league.

..

Nicole Fisher the founder and CEO of HHR Strategies, a health care and human rights focused advising firm said in an opinion piece she penned for Forbes.com that many in health and policy circles are calling the events nothing more than PR stunts.

..

She also criticized the conference for not allowing reporters or other interested parties to observe the meeting.
