For your convenience, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has designed an online learning opportunity about pediatric concussion for physicians and medical professionals. These videos will help you:

  • Provide and plan patient care after a concussion while utilizing all components of the concussion toolkit.
  • Describe the immediate and delayed potential consequences of concussion and the dangers of multiple concussions.
  • Explain when to advance to include an emergency department assessment and/or a CT scan.
  • Discuss with patients and parents the importance of a gradual return to activities, cognitive rest and follow-up care.

Our multidisciplinary approach helps make the Children’s Concussion Program unique, with services including:

We staff the program with a dedicated concussion nurse who helps coordinate each child’s care across the continuum and serves as a resource for healthcare professionals. The concussion team at Children’s works with each child’s primary care doctor to develop the best possible plan of care.
