How to Use This Program

1. Use the links above to make sure all coaches, school staff, parents, and students know how to recognize potential concussions and respond appropriately. Good concussion management won’t happen unless all stakeholders are fully trained.

2. Download “Concussion Management Team: Roles and Responsibilities” from the RESOURCE LIST. This resource provides instructions on how to set up a Concussion Management Team and a sample Concussion Management Policy. When a student gets a concussion, it takes a coordinated effort to ensure the best chance of full recovery.
