Comprehensive concussion guidelines are now available for Canada’s high-performance athletes.

A partnership between Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Sport Institute (COPSI) Network, Own the Podium (OTP), the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) and the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC), the new guidelines make recommendations for the recognition, diagnosis, treatment, and management of concussion among elite athletes.

Starting immediately, the guidelines apply to Canadian athletes competing in the Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as the Pan-American and Parapan-American Games.
