Panel Presentation: “Re-imagining Concussion Care in Youth: Considerations for complete care of the whole patient”
Panel Description: As we shift into a new level of legislation that will place more burden on healthcare practitioners, it’s advantageous to explore simmering questions about concussion care management and mental health. This panel will explore the complexities of concussion in a youth population focusing on the challenges of treating the injury holistically – brain, mind and body. The panel will also consider the challenge of pre-existing conditions (mental and physical) and best care pathways when they become a primary focus of recovery.
