HEADS UP to Health Care Providers

Timely recognition and appropriate response is important in treating a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) or concussion. Health care providers can play a key role in helping to prevent a concussion and to improve a patient’s health outcomes through early diagnosis, management, and appropriate referral.

CDC has created practical, easy-to-use clinical information and tools for health care providers and their patients, including free online training that offers free continuing education credits.
