About the project
The purpose of the project is to create earlier access to concussion specialty services for patients at risk of developing prolonged symptoms. A physician’s assistant was introduced in clinic, under the supervision of Dr. Shannon Bauman, to increase the number of available appointments for new concussion assessments and allow for easier and timely access to medical follow-up appointments throughout concussion recovery.
