Concussion Management
 

Recognise

Learn the signs and symptoms of a concussion so you understand when an athlete might have a suspected concussion.

 

Remove - 

If an athlete has a concussion or even a suspected concussion he or she must be removed from play immediately.

 

Refer - 

Once removed from play, the player should be referred immediately to a qualified healthcare professional who is trained in evaluating and treating concussions.

 

Rest - 

Players must rest from exercise until symptom-free and then start a Graduated Return to Play. World Rugby recommends a more conservative return to play for children and

adolescents.

 

Recover - 

Full recovery from the concussion is required before return to play is authorized. This includes being symptom-free. Rest and specific treatment options are critical for the health of the injured participant.

 

Return - 

In order for safe return to play in Rugby, the athlete must be symptom-free and cleared in writing by a qualified healthcare professional who is trained in evaluating and treating concussions. The athlete completes the GRTP (Graduated Return to Play) protocol.
