As a coach, teacher, trainer or parent - it is important to be able to recognize the signs of a concussion. It only costs you an hour of your time.
The CCMI Concussion Sideline Course is a great investment for coaches, trainers, and teachers. This course is designed to equip those on the front-lines with a basic understanding of what a concussion is, how to recognize them, and how to safely manage a concussed athlete back into the classroom and the sporting environment.
Upon completion of this course you will have access to the Concussion Tracker smartphone application that works directly with our international concussion database. This will allow you to create a list of all your players/students, report suspected injuries either directly to one of our concussion treatment facilities or download and bring the report to their doctor. If working with a certified Complete Concussion Management (CCMI) clinic, you will also get up to date information on concussed athletes from their primary health practitioner throughout their recovery process. This provides teachers and coaches with specific academic accommodations and athletic drills that they are either permitted, or not permitted, to do at each stage of their recovery.
Technology is playing a key role is how concussions are managed today. Complete Concussion Management is leading the way with their software and app. These provide the following benefits:
Improve Communication & Fast-track appointments- The Concussion Tracker App supports seamless communication between sports, schools, parents, and healthcare practitioners, which keeps everyone up to date when a concussion occurs. It also enables the treatment team to monitor the athlete daily from the clinic without requiring many in-person appointments.
File Access- The athlete’s file can be accessed by any healthcare practitioner by entering the access code from their bag tag.
Access to Information- The Concussion Tracker App provides information related to the Stage of Recovery. The athlete is able to see what activities are and are not appropriate for their stage. The coach is able to see what drills and skills are appropriate for practice.
Collect data points for research- The Complete Concussion Management software collects information on each client at each visit. This information is being compiled and will result in research articles in the near future. There is no other company collecting this volume of information. This research will help to improve Clinical Practice Guidelines based on results.
