PHO Grand Rounds: Concussions: An Acute Public Health Concern
乐动体育代理招商Concussions have received enormous attention in the past decade in both media and medicine. Furthermore, the science around this precarious injury is changing rapidly. Concussions are everyone’s responsibility and everyone needs to know and understand how to recognize, diagnose, treat and manage this injury, however, a gap exists among medical professionals, parents, caregivers, coaches, school professionals and workers/workplaces on how to deal with this injury.
The Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT) () addresses this gap by increasing knowledge and awareness among appropriate audiences.
乐动体育代理招商CATT is an online resource with comprehensive tools and materials providing training in concussion recognition and management and is based upon the international consensus on concussion in sport and other new and emerging evidence-based resources.
乐动体育代理招商Good concussion management can reduce health problems and the risk of long-term brain damage, potentially lowering total health care costs.
乐动体育代理招商This session will provide participants with an evidence-based resource that can increase awareness of concussion recognition, diagnosis, treatment and management. This tool can be used by public health practitioners in their work with community partners to support Rowan’s Law and Policy/Program Memorandum (PPM) 158 – School Board Policies on Concussion.
乐动体育代理招商By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Identify the physical, cognitive, and emotional changes that can occur when an individual suffers a concussion.
- Describe how the Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT) supports concussion recognition, diagnosis, treatment, and management.
- Discuss how the CATT could be incorporated in public health programs to address recent updates in concussion policy (e.g., PPM 158 and Rowan’s Law).
