The Concussion (Canada) PSP was established in 2020 to work with patients, carers and clinicians to identify and prioritize uncertainties related to the prevention, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of concussion. This will include patients of any age both diagnosed or suspected as having an acute and/or chronic concussion or mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI).
Despite its prevalence, there is a lack of research into concussion and the uncertainties identified by the PSP will help to guide future research.
The initial question gathering survey opened in February 2021 and is now closed. More information will be available here when the interim priority setting survey opens.
