Concussion talk is everywhere. How do we diagnose a concussion? How do we treat them? How do we build greater awareness?
How can we navigate the overwhelming body of research on the topic?
Fortunately, a doctor-professor from Toronto has sought to simplify the medical world’s best evidence on concussions.
Dr. Mike Evans works with a creative team to build awareness of different health topics in a current and easy-to-understand whiteboard format. It’s a self-proclaimed “med school for the public on YouTube.”
To say his work is clever would be an understatement.
Whether you’re a parent, teacher, coach, or athlete, be sure to watch Dr. Mike’s presentation on concussions:

The HEADWays Concussion APP
Slater Vecchio recently partnered with VGH and the UBC Hospital Foundation to fund the development of a mobile app for concussion care.
The HEADWays Concussion Recovery app is a self-management tool for individuals who have suffered a concussion. It’s the only self-management app written and created by doctors who specialize in concussion care.
