ONF–HQO collaborate to develop a set of quality standards for concussion

The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation in collaboration with Health Quality Ontario are working together to produce a set of quality standards for concussion to address gaps in care and management of concussion across the province.

This quality standard will focus on the assessment, diagnosis, and management of acute concussion and persistent post-concussion symptoms in children and adults in any setting where concussion care is provided (including primary care, emergency department, ambulatory care/outpatient setting, and concussion clinics [publicly funded and private]).

Join the Committee!

We are seeking volunteers interested in joining an Advisory Committee that willprovide advice to support the development of a quality standard focused on concussion.

Applications will be accepted until February 4, 2019.
