The Sport Concussion Library offers a wealth of information on the topic of sport concussion. It has information for all audiences, including
- Coaches and First Responders (Therapists/Trainers)
- Educational Institutions
The Library is a non-profit, no-fee, publically accessible storehouse for all non-commercial peer reviewed literature on sport concussion. It includes recently published
- journal articles
- book chapters
- thesis dissertations
- relevant legislative initiatives
Further, it contains links to selected non-commercial educational sites (e.g., ThinkFirst, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), as well as basic concussion information and select literature summaries.
Researchers will find particularly useful the list of active members of the Sport Neurotrauma and Concussion Initiative (SNCI) Research Committee, including links to their most recent published research. Also included are lists of other non-committee, university-affiliated researchers and research centres. The Researchers’ section of the library is specifically designed to enhance and improve communication between researchers, and serve as a point of contact for information exchange and project collaboration.
Athletes will be interested in the sport concussion documentaries in the Press Box section. They are encouraged to complete the e-module, and to read the personal stories of those athletes who have suffered from this injury.
Parents, Coaches and First Responders (Therapists/Trainers) and Physicians will want to explore the main library, the free downloadable SCAT2 system, and the general information section.
Educational Institutions will find useful the sport concussion specific library as well as the education-specific links in the general information section. Also of particular interest will be the e-modules, the section on legislation, and documentaries relevant to this important educational based initiative.
