The Ontario Athletic Therapist Association is proud to announce that our organization is official partners in the Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Strategy led by the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation.
This Strategy is aimed at “improving and standardizing evidence-informed practice, working together to improve cooperation between sectors, and most importantly aiming to improve outcomes of individuals who sustain mTBI. The Strategy includes organizational leaders and experts from multiple sectors, including medical and rehabilitation fields, health associations, consumer organizations, sports, workplace, education, research, insurance, law, government, as well as many others.
The Strategy includes a focus on Recognition and Awareness, Diagnosis and Early Education of Patients and Families, Access to Care and Timely Intervention, Management of Persistent Symptoms, and Psychosocial and Reintegration. A Coordinating Committee which includes the Co-Chairs of the five Working Groups addressing these priority areas acts as an oversight, communication and coordinative body to align the actions and reduce overlap”.
