This educational program is aimed at informing medical providers of current state laws and practice guidelines to promote more uniform concussion awareness and management in schools and medical practices. This educational program also fulfills the new state law that aims to increase the number and scope of providers authorized to approve return to play approval for youth with concussions. This activity will provide a background into state laws surrounding concussions; provide some medical background on what concussions actually are and how to evaluate and treat them; address some new and emerging technologies that have helped the community; and perhaps most importantly, will identify the uniform protocols that everybody can rely upon in order to return student athletes to school, work, and play.
