Advancing concussion care through education, scientific-evidence and community support (ACCESS)

Advancing Concussion Care through Education, Scientific-evidence and community Support (ACCESS) logoACCESS serves to bridge the gap between research and clinical practice in order to better identify and treat sport-related concussions/mild traumatic brain injuries with the current best practice guidelines.

The legislation of Rowan’s Law in 2019 put the spotlight on sport-related concussions and helped to increase public recognition within the community of concussions as a serious injury. It is important that all health care practitioners are provided with up-to-date evidence-based concussion management strategies to better treat individuals who have sustained these injuries.

ACCESS partnered with the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF) to provide clinicians treating these injuries with resources that translate the existing guidelines for concussion/mild traumatic brain injury and prolonged symptoms into short videos that will help allow implementation of these strategies and promote interdisciplinary evidence-based interventions in this population.
