One of the challenges faced by concussion care providers is patient education. While athletes are getting increasing attention and resources for the prevention and treatment of sport-related concussions, many concussions go undiagnosed and untreated. This is partly caused by inadequate patient education around the causes, symptoms and care of concussions.
One particular challenge is the number of symptoms that are related to concussions – when presenting symptoms in a printed format, the information needs to be condensed in a way that is easy to read. This may leave symptoms out of the list, of it may use names and descriptions that are not familiar to most patients.
Fortunately on the web we don't have that type of space limitations. To address the challenges of concussion education, we developed a custom Concussion Symptoms tool that allows users to research their symptoms. Over 130 symptoms were loaded, covering all common symptoms, and accounting for different naming options for the same symptom. This dynamic, patient-centered tool allows individuals to learn more about symptoms and identify the Rothman Concussion Network specialties and assessments for a specific symptom.
