Western RTO Update
New hard-hitting recommendations by the Canadian Concussion Collaborative call for an end to the haphazard approach to current concussion management for all sports and sporting events in Canada. The recommendations, outlined in the British Journal of Sports Medicine,are calling on all sport organizations and sport event organizers to implement a concussion management protocol.
The recommendations, supported by nine leading health and sport organizations that comprise the Canadian Concussion Collaborative (CCC), were developed in response to the growing health risk athletes face every time they step onto the field of play of a high-risk, contact sport, such as hockey, football, soccer or basketball.

And when you reach your goal, you can only be happy. I had several good victories today and that’s just incredible.’’ Western Canada- Regional Integration Officer Update September 2014 2 of 4
