Concussion

The overall purpose of the Concussion Research Project (CRP) clinic is to optimize the assessment, management and follow-up for children who remain symptomatic three months following a sport-related head injury. Optimal care of patients with prolonged post-concussion symptoms includes a thorough medical evaluation and referrals to the appropriate specialties, including neurology, neurosurgery, the pain service and pediatrics. The focus is on providing a multidisciplinary approach to care that includes a collaborative management plan and appropriate follow-up. The knowledge gained from this research project will guide the development of preventive measures in children found to be at high risk of developing post- concussion syndrome.
