OHSU has developed a concussion education program with information about return to play protocols for the expanded list of health care professionals who can now provide medical release to youth athletes suspected of having concussion, as described in Oregon SB 1547.

This program is delivered fully online, and can be completed in approximately 90 minutes.*

By the end of this program you should be able to:

  • Differentiate the current state laws about concussion care.
  • Identify state and national organizations and resources that assist with concussions.
  • Recognize common signs and symptoms of concussion.
  • Understand how to use the SCAT5 concussion evaluation Tool.

  • Describe the use of Impact computer based neuropsych testing.
  • Review treatment and rehabilitation options after concussion.
  • Understand the Return to Play protocols for the OSAA.
  • Understand how Return to Learn recommendations and accommodations are used.
     

Health care professionals of all disciplines can benefit from more concussion education. This specifically includes medical doctors, osteopathic doctors, chiropractic doctors, naturopathic doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, psychologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, athletic trainers, optometrists, nurses, counselors, educators or other medical or educational professionals who have interest in improving their knowledge of concussion evaluation and care.

Specifically, this program, when completed, will fulfill the training requirements of qualified health care professionals to provide medical clearance for return to play for Oregon youth with concussions.

$50.00 - covers program registration and credit certificate.

Note: A portion of all program fees collected will go towards a concussion-related education fund.
