Concussion Program Description:

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.
