Student asks the experts about why she should stay out of the game if she suspects a concussion

In order to address the most common questions about pediatric concussion that CHOP concussion specialists hear from patients, parents, school and coaches, the Minds Matter team at CIRP@CHOP created eight short videos ranging in length from 1.5 to 3.5 minutes. Take a look at Video FAQs on Concussions and share them with your colleagues and families.

The videos are simple, direct and provide answers in relatable terms for families.  They are excellent companions to the best practice-informed infographics, posters, fact sheets and Web content already developed for Minds Matter: Improving Concussion Care for Kids.

Matt Grady, MD, a featured CHOP concussion specialist in the videos, was also just interviewed for an October 27th New York Times “Well Blog” article about the American Academy of Pediatrics' recently released recommendations for "returning to learning" after a concussion.
