Resources for Youth (Released May 2021)

In collaboration with youth who have experienced concussion, we have developed two resources that share information about what to do if you have a concussion and how to approaching returning to school after concussion. These two resources have been designed for use by youth and offer a series of recommendations to help children and adolescents with concussion recover safely and return to school and other activities that they enjoy.

#PedsConcussion Clinical Algorithm: Managing Post-#Concussion #Headache

➡️Early referral if high risk for a prolonged recovery
➡️Encourage cognitive activity and low-risk physical activity as tolerated while staying below symptom exacerbation threshold

Join @T4CIP on Twitter today at 2 p.m. for their Helmet Action Day Twitter Chat event. Wearing a helmet greatly reduces the risk of brain injury after getting into a bicycle accident. Join @T4CIP and BIAA this Helmet Action Day and encourage those around you to #WearAHelmet

How long after a concussion can you return to physical activity? #CHEOResearch study shows returning to non-contact physical activity 72 hours post-concussion is safe & may reduce symptoms. Watch our latest #DiscoveryMinute to learn more! #CHEO #concussion #concussionresearch
