Concussion Management for Doctors and Healthcare Professionals


Concussion is an issue that affects all sports and it is important that everyone in Rugby recognises the symptoms of concussion and removes from playing or training any player with clear or suspected symptoms.

This resource is designed for doctors and healthcare professionals, especially those who are not directly involved in Rugby but who want to better understand concussion for situations where a patient presents with a head injury.
