Course Description

Concussions are serious traumatic brain injuries that can occur in any sport and can be very dangerous if not managed properly. Teachers, coaches, and other school personnel have a responsibility to students and athletes to prevent concussions and respond properly when they occur. This brief continuing education course was developed using information for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and prevention to provide facts about concussions, identify signs and symptoms, and to outline prevention and preparation strategies. Specific considerations for athletes, coaches, parents, teachers, and other school representatives are discussed as well as strategies to help the student have a smooth transition back to school after a concussion.
