Funding Announced for Paediatric Concussion Guidelines

I just received an interesting update from our partners at Concussions Ontario.  The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF) has just announced funding for the development of Guidelines for Management of Concussion/mTBI Symptoms in Children and Youth.

This initiative will be led by many leaders familiar to the CAPHC community, including Dr. Roger Zemek, Emergency Physician at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Carol DeMatteo, McMaster University and CanChild Centre for Disability Research; Bev Solomon, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehab, Michelle Keightley, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehab and University of Toronto, and Martin Osmond, Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, University of Ottawa

The project will begin in February 2013 and will be completed by the end of March 2014 and we look forward to more information as it becomes available.

Check out the Concussions Ontario website for more information at:  www.concussionsontario.org .
