The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation has published a new handbook entitled the Concussion Handbook for patients and families. The new user friendly book is derived from the evidence-based standards of post-concussion care. The handbook provides patients and families with the information they need to know, after experiencing a concussion. The handbook can be used as a guide for patients and families of any age to find the right care, at the right time, from the right provider.
Doctors – please download this booklet from our site or from the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation’s website and share if with your patients. With the help of the book, your patients will be able to better understand how, what and when care should be provided, and this should streamline visits with healthcare practitioners. The Concussion handbook differs from concussion guidelines as it relates to helping someone through the journey of concussion as opposed to the actual practice of treating concussion.
