The SIRC team explores five key questions in concussion management, prevention and education:


What role does education play in improving sport-related concussion management & prevention?

Strength & Conditioning

Are sport-related concussions different in males and females? What does the research say?

Test Your Concussion Knowledge

The field of concussion research is evolving quickly, and staying on top of the latest knowledge can be a challenge. Dr. Roger Zemek of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and 360 Concussion Care helps cut through the noise by breaking down common concussion facts vs myths:

Fact or Myth? “Younger children take longer to recover from concussions, compared with older teens.”

Fact or myth? “Boys are at a higher risk of concussion, and concussion recovery takes longer in boys.”

Fact or Myth? “Following a concussion, youth may safely resume only once they are symptom-free.”
