Project Lead: Cindy Hunt
Project Purpose: The specific outcome was to develop and implement a digital tool that uses results of the Rivermead Post-Concussion Symptoms Questionnaire (RPQ) to generate customized written education materials for patients.
About the project
The purpose of the project was to improve patient education and self-management of symptoms by ensuring completing of the Rivermead Post-Concussion Questionnaire during each visit to the clinic. The digital tool allows for patients to complete the RPQ in the waiting room prior to their appointment with a clinician, allowing for more time in the visit for discussion about symptoms and patient education. iPads were purchased to facilitate completion of the RPQ. A tool was generated to customize education for patients based on the ONF guidelines.
