June 25th, CBC News - Concussion experts in Ottawa launch guidelines for treating kids.

 

Emergency medicine researchers at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario and the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation have launched recommendations aimed at treating children and teens with concussions. Project leader Dr. Roger Zemek, director of pediatric emergency research at CHEO,​ said there was a need for recommendations specifically covering children five to 18 years old, since existing guidelines focus on adults and sport-related injuries.
