Adult Concussion Guidelines

In June 2018, the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation released the updated Third Edition of the Guidelines for Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Persistent Symptoms.

The Guidelines for Concussion/ mTBI and Persistent Symptoms were developed to enable health care practitioners to provide enhanced care for those 18 years of age and older who are living with the effects of the injury.

The guidelines are now in their third edition, published in June 2018. Three new features are:

  • Patient and family version for each section of the guideline, containing the key information, and offering resources based on needs identified by persons with concussion.
  • Indication for certain recommendations, of the evidence level being upgraded from the previous edition.
  • A new interactive and searchable platform for the guidelines, making it easier for users to find the information they want.
