This webinar will share strategies for school-based clinicians to better manage concussions. Coming from the lack of knowledge on this topic, the act of treating a TBI can be delayed which delays and sometime worsens the treatment of patients. This webinar will help those members of a child's school-based health care team better identify and treat TBIs.
- After the webinar participants will be able to define pediatric concussion.
- Following this webinar participants will be able to discuss field and office concussion management.
