Concussion Awareness, Prevention & Management

For further reference: Policy 310: Concussion Awareness, Prevention and Management.

​​Concussions are complex, costly injuries that school-age children and youth are at greater risk for than the general population. Young brains take longer to heal than adult brains and concussive injuries can permanently change the way a child or youth talks, walks, learns, works and interacts with others.

About Concussion Awareness, Prevention & Management

The North Vancouver School District has created this repository of concussion awareness resources, training tools, and external website links in an effort to provide parents/caregivers, students/athletes, coaches, and school professionals with the information and tools they may need to 1) have awareness of the seriousness of concussions, 2) recognize the value of concussion prevention, and 3) have effective concussion recognition, reporting and management procedures.

Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT)

The Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT), is a free, online resource that can be used to better understand concussion care. Developed by the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit at BC Children's Hospital and the University of British Columbia (UBC), the Concussion Awareness Training Tool can be found here.
