Youth Sport Concussion Management
As knowledge about concussions increases and more is being discovered regarding the lasting effects of concussions, youth sport coaches need to be better informed and educated on the signs and symptoms of concussions and the management of concussions and return-to-play procedures. This research examines what coaches of youth athletes (5-12 years of age) know about concussions and concussion management. Semi-structured interviews with coaches were conducted and will be analyzed in order to develop recommendations for effective training tools to help coaches identify and properly manage youth sport concussions.
