New Concussion Awareness and Educational Resources
July 15, 2021

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) treats more pediatric concussions than any other healthcare system in the United States. School nurses, coaches, athletic trainers and athletic directors are essential in early concussion identification, which is key for a full recovery. Healthcare providers are critical to diagnosis and recovery. All are a family's first line of defense after an injury, along with accurate information to navigate their children’s concussions.

As a CHOP Frontier Program, the Minds Matter Concussion Program has developed an evidence-based approach to diagnosing and treating concussions in children and teens. The clinicians and scientists seek to continually learn from every child we care for and rapidly translate cutting-edge research to improve diagnosis and treatment of concussion in youth to optimize individual outcomes.

The Minds Matter Concussion Program recently created a series of concussion awareness and patient education fact sheets, flyers, and posters for providers and school- and youth sport-based personnel to share with families so they learn the facts about concussion, recognize concussion symptoms, and support a full recovery.

For Healthcare Providers

Share these new resources with patient families to help increase awareness of concussion and educate families with a concussion diagnosis about how best to manage their children’s recovery.
