Building a Circle of Care for Youth Concussion in School Settings

Provide athletic trainers, coaches, athletic directors and other school personnel with the best practices for concussion assessment and management. The workshop will emphasize practical aspects of concussion assessment and management in school settings.

The awareness of concussion as a major public health concern for youth athletes has substantially increased in the last five years. Despite the staggering numbers of concussion in adolescents, the resources devoted to implement best practices in concussion management have been focused on collegiate and professional athletes. Coaches, athletic trainers and athletic directors often faced with challenging situations with concussion diagnoses, return to play and school accommodations after concussion. Moreover, school personnel are often under tremendous pressure from students, parents and other parties to allow the youth athlete to return to play. The recent youth concussion law passed in the State of Michigan has also introduced legal consequences to the concussion management in schools.
