Concussion Workshop for Primary Care Providers


The primary care concussion workshop will provide primary care providers with the terminology, skills and resources to appropriately assess and manage concussion injuries. The workshop will also help providers to identify when it is appropriate to refer to a concussion expert. This face-to-face workshop will offer a blended educational approach by first ensuring that all participants have an understanding of current best practices and incidence of concussion in northern Ontario. Learners will then participate in facilitated, small group learning using cases that demonstrate the progression and various considerations in the care of a patient with concussion. An opportunity for practice reflection will provide participants with the opportunity to share experiences and obtain feedback from their peers and from the facilitator.

If you are a primary care provider in rural or urban northern Ontario, this workshop is for you!

Learning Objectives:

  • Define concussion, incidence and expected recovery
  • Recognize an athlete at risk of concussion
  • Discuss return to learn and return to play protocol with patient and family
  • Assess the impact of other health conditions masked by concussion and their impact on concussion recovery
  • Discuss considerations in recurrent concussions
