Concussion Workshop for Primary and Post Primary Teachers

Concussion Workshop for Primary and Post Primary Teachers

As a member of school staff, understanding of concussion is critical in, firstly, identifying and managing a potential concussion safely and, secondly, helping students successfully recover from their injury upon their return to school. This is a great opportunity for teachers to improve their knowledge and skills around concussion safety, a topic of huge importance with regards to student health and wellbeing. Concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that carries serious health risks, which are exacerbated by incorrect concussion management steps. In a student's typical day at school, a concussion can occur during PE, playing a school sports match, playing on the school yard, or even tripping and falling in the classroom. In what can be a chaotic time, knowing the appropriate management steps can make all the difference.
