A closer look at the interdisciplinary roles of healthcare providers managing concussion

May 5, 2020

We continue to raise awareness about post-concussion care. We are committed to ensuring Ontarians get the right care, delivered at the right time, by the right provider.

We have all heard the expression, “it takes a village” – the same can be true in post-concussion management. No one healthcare provider (HCP) can manage all symptoms; sometimes, a team of interdisciplinary HCPs is needed to help people with concussion reach their recovery goals. Each provider plays a unique role to treat and manage symptoms; but what exactly does that role look like?

In our new Concussion Health Care and Treatment (CHaT) video series we feature the various providers involved in post-concussion care and take a closer look at their role in treating symptoms. The videos are based on the evidence from ONF’s Clinical Practice Guideline for Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) and Prolonged Symptoms , 3rd Edition for Adults 18+ years (2018) and Standards for Post-Concussion Care (2017).

Look out for more videos featuring Chiropractors, Physiatrists and many others!
