Concussion Safety Presentation
One of the things that can derail the enjoyment of hockey is injury. Concussion is one of the most complex injuries in the game and our understanding of this injury continues to evolve.
Hockey Alberta is committed to creating a safe and fun environment for all participants. As part of this commitment, Hockey Alberta has created a new presentation focusing on concussions. The presentation, which is approximately two hours, features information from industry experts and guidance from professionals with a broad range of medical knowledge.
The goal of this presentation is to provide a standard message in an interactive manner that allows attendees to expand their knowledge of concussion and recovery from this injury. Key topics covered include:
- What is a concussion and what are the common causes?
- What does recovery from a concussion look like?
- What are the expectations from Hockey Alberta and Hockey Canada for returning to play from a concussion?
To deliver the presentation, Hockey Alberta is building a province-wide network of industry experts who share Hockey Alberta’s desire for a safe environment for our participants. Each facilitator works in the industry, has specific knowledge on concussions, and understands the game.
This presentation is free to Hockey Alberta members. The only requirement is that the host organization provides a suitable meeting room with audio/visual equipment.
