Abstract

Concussion awareness is a hot topic in youth sports, resulting in increased health care visits. There has been much change in concussion management over the past decade. VT passed a law (Act 68) implementing a concussion management program in schools. Not all primary care physicians are aware of how this law may affect their practice, nor are they all aware of some of the recent changes in concussion management. Improper concussion management can lead to prolonged symptoms, recurrent injuries and long-term sequelae.
