To Whom it May Concern,
In my role as a consultant physician to the Vancouver Canucks, Canadian Olympic Team physician in Sochi 2014, and Physician Lead of the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association, I have practical experience with the changes in management of head injuries in professional sport. Concussion management in professional vs. amateur sport tends to be very different. I believe the time has come for us to facilitate change in concussion management at the minor league, recreational and youth sport level. Fifteen to twenty percent of all participants in contact sport will suffer a concussion. Current amateur sport policies do not always result in optimal management of these frequently occurring injuries.
