"One thing I've noticed over the years in my practice is that there's a lot of misinformation and lack of awareness around concussion. If you know the up-to-date information on concussions, it can make a big difference in the recovery, which is why new resources and videos such as this are so important to Nova Scotians." - Dr. Tina Atkinson, Sport and Exercise Medicine Physician
In partnership with the Brain Injury Association of Nova Scotia we are excited to launch a new concussion awareness video, "The First Few Days After Concussion" featuring Sport and Exercise Medicine Physician Dr. Tina Atkinson, as well as a refreshed concussion resource webpage including the new return to sport guidelines https://braininjuryns.com/concussion.
The Province of Nova Scotia has partnered our Atlantic Canada partners in sport to deliver a live session on the evening of October the 5th to promote concussion awareness . This one-hour session is available in both official languages and will target athletes, parents, coaches, and sport leaders from the Atlantic Provinces. The session will include experts and athletes sharing their expertise and experience in managing concussions.
Below is the link to the session landing page with more information and registration for the October 5th event. Please share with your clubs and contacts and feel free to post on your organization’s social media channels. The focus of the session is targeting athletes aged 13+ so if you can send directly to Provincial Teams, Canada games University and College teams.
