Great video on concussions for parents, kids -- & NHLers
This is a great video that makes concussions easier to understand, prepared by Dr. Mike Evans of Toronto. This is really worth watching for kids and parents -- and I suspect that a lot of NHL players could even benefit from it, too.
Evans is a great communicator and very passionate about what he does and the format he uses to deliver the information here is extremely effective.
Also recently unveiled was the ThinkFirst Concussion Education Online. Prepared by a committee of neurosurgeons, researchers, and leaders in sport-injury prevention, the course can be completed in less than an hour, from any location, with technical support available 24/7. Participants who pass the course test can download and print a Certificate of Completion.
It's critical for parents with kids involved in contact sports to understand this serious injury.
