Richmond School District Evaluation : District-wide Education and Awareness Turcotte, Kate; Zheng, Alex; Babul, Shelina

Abstract

The Richmond School District in British Columbia and Dr. Shelina Babul of the B.C. Injury Research and Prevention Unit, BC Children’s Hospital, collaborated on the development of a concussion management protocol and district-wide education and awareness, based upon the Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT) resource. CATT is intended to support standardized concussion response and management, and includes toolkits with self-paced learning modules and other tailored resources for various audiences. CATT for School Professionals provides educators and school administrators with resources for supporting a student in his/her integration back to school after sustaining a concussion or how to respond to a situation where a student may have sustained a concussion in the school setting. This collaboration resulted in the creation of a district-wide concussion protocol, a tailored concussion response poster promoting the CATT Concussion Pathway, and professional development sessions for educators (administrators, teachers, support staff) on concussion which were held February 15th during the Richmond School District Conference – 2019.
