The Canadian Paediatric Society recommends that anyone involved in child and youth sport should be educated about the signs and symptoms of concussion and the appropriate management of a child with a concussion.
Any concerns pertaining to concussions, injuries or other medical conditions should seek medical attention at the nearest hospital or follow up with a family physician.
