Concussion Recognition Tool

Concussion can be difficult to recognise

The Concussion Recognition Tool is:

  • Designed for non-medical persons
  • To be used for identification of suspected concussion
  • A stepwise approach to recognise concussion
  • Not designed to diagnose concussion (only a medic can diagnose concussion)

Symptoms after concussion are not always visible.

Some symptoms evolve over minutes and hours – other symptoms may evolve over days to weeks.

The role of coaches, officials and the wider sporting community is to:

  • Recognise the signs and symptoms
  • Remove athletes from play who display those signs and symptoms

If in doubt sit them out.
