Virtual Concussion Training

Concussions are serious brain injuries that can impact children physically, cognitively, emotionally, and behaviorally. Childhood concussions can have many causes, such as falls, motor vehicle crashes, and athletics. The OSDH Injury Prevention Service, in partnership with the Oklahoma Childhood Concussion Coalition, created Developing Concussion Policies: A Guide for School Districts to assist schools with writing and implementing policies for the prevention and management of sports- and recreation-related concussions in accordance with Oklahoma state law. In addition, Return to Learn and Return to Play protocols for Oklahoma were developed, along with concussion fact sheets for youth, caregivers, and coaches.
