Adults – The Guidelines for Concussion/ mTBI and Persistent Symptoms were developed to enable health care practitioners to provide enhanced care for those 18 years of age and older who are living with the effects of the injury.

The guidelines are now in their third edition, published in June 2018. Three new features are:

- Patient and family version for each section of the guideline, containing the key information, and offering resources based on needs identified by persons with concussion.

- Indication for certain recommendations, of evidence being upgraded from the previous edition, as a result of stronger and more evidence being available.

- A new interactive and searchable platform for the guidelines, making it easier for users to find the information they want.
