Developing a Concussion Policy: Information for Recreation and Sport Leaders and Organizations
Developing a Concussion Policy: Information for Recreation and Sport Leaders & Organizations was produced in collaboration with a number of Canadian organizations from health, education, recreation and sport and is based on the Center for Disease and Injury Control (CDC)'s Get a Heads Up on Concussion in Sports: Policies Information for Parents, Coaches, and School & Sports Professionals. PSI is grateful to the CDC for permission to recreate the document for a Canadian audience.
This document is intended to promote discussion and action about concussion prevention and management strategies within sport and recreation organizations in Canada. Injuries, like concussion, are predictable and preventable. This information should not serve as a proxy for legal or healthcare advice.
This free resource is available for organizations to download and share as they embark on the process of developing appropriate concussion policies.
