Concussion Guidelines for the Education Sector

The Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine UK (FSEM) is supporting new Concussion Guidelines for the Education Sector, produced by the Forum on Concussion in Sport and Physical Education in conjunction with the Sport and Recreational Alliance. The guidelines have been created in order to alleviate parental concerns around the safety of school sport and to ensure a consistent and suitable management protocol is available to those working with children in the education sector. The guidelines include the four principles of concussion management: RECOGNISE - REMOVE - RECOVER - RETURN #concussionguidelines
