Concussions are a reality for many sports and recreation programs, whether it’s football, hockey, lacrosse, rugby, skateboarding or even hiking. In fact, concussions are the injury that parents are most concerned about when it comes to the safety of their children [Source: Aspen Institute]!
Ensuring that athletes are safe when it comes to concussions is incredibly important, and should be at the top of any sports association or recreation program’s priorities. This is why we’re so excited to introduce ePACT’s new Concussion History module. Created in partnership with SportMedBC, who are experts in the field of sport medicine, science and training, this new feature is designed to help you collect in-depth concussion information for all athletes or participants in your association.
Concussion management is an important part of athlete care, and this feature helps your sports organization:
- Ensure managers and coaches are aware of an athlete’s specific concussion history
- Guide coaching staff to adjust training and play for affected athletes, to support concussion prevention
- Confirm that athletes only return to play once it is safe to do so, with proper documentation and doctor’s approval
- Share accurate health information with doctors and trainers in the event of a future concussion or incident
How Concussion History Works
- Parents add the concussion details that your organization needs to assess if a player can safely participate
- Coaches, managers, or other staff have immediate access to Clearance Reports or important details when a risk manager or parent uploads them
- Information is easy to search and export to provide to medical professionals when required
