Our collaborative partnership with the Sentara RMH Orthopedics and Sports Medicine has provided education, awareness and input for the development of a multidisciplinary school-based concussion management program in each of our schools. A two-person concussion management team monitors and assists students in return-to-learn after suffering a concussion or brain injury. The symptom monitor, a school nurse, and an academic monitor work together with the student, parents, teachers, athletic trainers, counselors, and physicians to monitor the student in the academic setting. A flow chart for referrals, forms for documenting symptoms and academic progress, and informational handouts for teachers and parents have been developed. Brian injury can happen to anyone.
