Last summer, we came across CATT, an online Concussion Awareness Training Toolkit to help health professionals better recognize and treat concussions. The website is funded by the BC Ministry of Health and spearheaded by Dr. Shelina Babul, associate director of the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit at BC Children’s Hospital.

And now a year after its initial launch, Babul and her team have rolled out a second phase geared towards parents, players, and coaches. A third phase for teachers will be added in the fall.

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. The development was spearheaded by Dr. Dan DeForge, Dr. David Koo, and Ms. Alice Rose from the acquired brain injury program at GF Strong Rehab Centre and the UBC Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
