Resources on Concussion in a Virtual Environment (Recover)

RECOVER (Resources on Concussion in a Virtual Environment) was a study being conducted by researchers at Alberta Health Services, the University of Calgary and the University of Alberta. To improve outcomes for children with concussion who are seen in emergency departments, the study developed tools to help physicians and nurses provide better care and to help families to learn more about, assess, and monitor concussion.
