The Living Guideline for Diagnosing and Managing Pediatric Concussion by created by The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation




Resources for Families, Schools and Sports Organizations

Are you a healthcare provider looking to share important information with families, schools and coaches that are based on the guideline? Perhaps you’re a family member, teacher or coach that is interested in information that is relevant to you from this guideline. We developed two different types of resources including a new family version of the clinical guideline and three handouts for parents, teachers, and coaches. In the Fall of 2020 we will be releasing a new version for adolescents to learn more about concussion.

Printable handouts have been developed for Parents, Teachers, and Coaches. These handouts share a summary of the Living Guideline and include information about concussion and clear steps for returning to activities, sport, and school. The handouts also include a list of additional online resources.

A pdf document is in a Q & A format and is designed for use by parents/caregivers offering a series of recommendations to help children and adolescents with concussion recover safely and return to their everyday life.

Extract: "In 2019, the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation worked with concussion experts and researchers to create a living clinical practice guideline for pediatric concussion. The guideline is living because it is continually updated as new research becomes available."


The Living Guideline for Diagnosing and Managing Pediatric Concussion by created by The Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation is now available at this website. Permanent website:


Message: "What's Next? The "living" process has already begun! The ONF has committed to continue funding this project. We will be working together to update the website recommendations and resources and regularly review the latest evidence. Expert panelists will be contacted when critical papers are published and we will work through the Agree II process to determine how the new research and evidence will change clinical practice. Please reach out if you are aware of any new resources or if you have any suggestions for our living guideline."
