 CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT

 


**ALL COACHING STAFF MEMBERS AND PARENTS SHOULD REVIEW THE INFORMATION ON CONCUSSIONS.**

Please visit the website www.hdco.on.ca and review the section on concussions. From the site click on “Hockey Trainers certificationthendownloads”  thenconcussion awareness card”.

...all players should consult a physician when a concussion is suspected.  Coaches, trainers/safety people, players and parents should not attempt to treat a concussion without a physician's involvement.

There is also a 6 step return to play procedure to follow,

 

 

...The return to play process is gradual, and begins after a doctor has given the

player clearance to return to activity. If any symptoms/signs return during this

process, the player must be re-evaluated by a physician. No return to play if

any symptoms or signs persist. Remember, symptoms may return later that day

or the next, not necessarily when exercising!

You will also find many other helpful tools.
