Free Concussion Workshop
Dr. Mark Dubreuil from CARE Concussion Centre will be presenting at the “Use Your Head” Concussion Workshop hosted by the Brain Injury Association of Windsor and Essex on Monday November 9th, 2015 at the Essex Centre Sports Plex, Shaheen Community Room. A panel of experts will speak on various concussion topics, such as, identifying concussions on the playing field, return-to-play guidelines, school concussion policy and baseline testing. The event will bring like minded individuals from different areas of expertise to share their knowledge on the subject, and is being held to help educate people involved in sporting or schooling events where potential for concussion is real.
Concussion recognition and awareness has grown dramatically in the past few years and a lot of money and time has been allocated in for studying this common condition. We have to remember that concussions are in fact a type of brain injury and that there can be debilitating, even tragic, effects if not diagnosed or treated properly. One of CARE Concussion Centre’s main goals is to build awareness and help educate the general public as to what to look for if a concussion is suspected and the appropriate treatment options to prevent long term effects.
Dr. Dubreuil will be representing CARE Concussion Centre at the workshop and will be covering such topics as:
- Signs and Symptoms of a concussion to look for as a trainer
- Assessment on the ice or field of play
- Removal from play until medically cleared
- Return-to-play guidelines
- TSMHA Concussion Policy
The event is FREE and recommended for any coach, parent or child who is interested in learning about concussions or is involved in sports where players have a potential for sustaining a concussion. We look forward to seeing as many people as we can to come join us for this great event.
