Concussion prevention is everyone’s responsibility: it requires a lot of communication and compliance. Most sports organizations, schools and childcare facilities should have processes in place to prevent and deal with injuries including concussions. These processes should include the following topics:

  • Preventative measures to reduce the risks of concussion
  • Concussion education
  • Head injury identification
  • Initial assessment
  • Medical assessment
  • Concussion management

As a parent of a student or athlete, you can ask the coach, principal or childcare worker to obtain a copy of the protocol in order to familiarize yourself with their approach.
