Concussion Protocol

Squash Canada Concussion Protocol (September 6, 2019)

Adapted from: Parachute. (2017). Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport. www.parachutecanada.org/guideline

Squash Canada has developed the Squash Canada Concussion Protocol to help guide the management of athletes who may have a suspected concussion as a result of participation in Squash Canada activities.

Purpose

This protocol covers the recognition, medical diagnosis, and management of squash participants who may sustain a suspected concussion during a sport activity. It aims to ensure that athletes with a suspected concussion receive timely and appropriate care and proper management to allow them to return back to squash safely. This protocol may not address every possible clinical scenario that can occur during sport-related activities but includes critical elements based on the latest evidence and current expert consensus.

Who should use this protocol?

This protocol is intended for use by all individuals who interact with squash participants inside and outside the context of organized Squash Canada activity, including athletes, parents, coaches, officials, teachers, trainers, and licensed healthcare professionals.
