School District Concussion Policy Checklist

 

Does your school district have a formal school board approved concussion policy that is in compliance with the NJ Concussion Law?

Does the policy define "trained in the management of concussion?"

While "trained in the management of concussions" is included in the law, there currently is not a formally approved concussion credential that identifies a physician's training. The ATSNJ recommends you seek concussion care from a physician experienced with concussions, who is up to date on the latest guidelines in the recognition of the signs, symptoms, and appropriate management of concussive brain injury.
