Concussion

Concussions present many challenges to providers including initial assessment of severity of injury, management of acute and prolonged concussive symptoms and evaluation of patients for readiness to return to activities. The EvidenceCare Concussion pathway provides recommendations for the immediate evaluation of mild traumatic brain injury and includes decision tools to assess the need for neuro-imaging. Recommendations are based on the latest research and guidelines from the American College of Emergency Physicians, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Veterans Health Administration and Department of Defense (VA/DoD), Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF) and Consensus Statement from the 4th International Conference on Concussion in Sport.
