Concussion Awareness & Treatment

concussion

The IRFU have put together an information guide on concussion which can be downloaded from this link.  Although this guide is directed at adult and youth/child rugby players, concussion is not just a rugby event and can occur during any activity (e.g. playground, GAA, soccer, falling off a bike, etc.).

The key points of note are:

  • Concussion MUST be taken extremely seriously.
  • Any player with a suspected concussion MUST be removed immediately from training/play and not return.
  • They should be medically assessed.
  • They MUST not be left alone and MUST not drive a vehicle.

There are also a very useful series of videos on the IRFU site that can be accessed here.
