Concussion Management for Elite Level Match Day Medical Staff


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 has been developed to provide Elite Level Match Day Medical Staff with an understanding of the role of the Match Day Doctor and of the implementation of the Head Injury Assessment process.
