Concussion toolkit

Our concussion toolkit is a collection of materials created by Children’s designed to help you manage concussions in your practice. You will find:

  • A tool for assessing concussions and mild brain injuries
  • Emergency department referral and CT scan criteria
  • The Glasgow coma scale
  • Red flags, signs that a concussion is serious
  • A cognitive rest and academic recovery plan and sample letters
  • Sample return-to-play and return-to-game letters

Patient handouts

A child should recover and be completely symptom-free—at rest and with physical exertion—before returning to sports or other activities. These tools can help patients determine when it is safe.

General concussion guidelines for patients

Concussion research

We are working to find out more about concussion, its possible effects and how best to help patients fully recover. Your patients might benefit from participation in one of our research projects.
