1. Return to Physical Education: Introduction of a New Protocol - Zoom

Audience: All

Dates: 4/27/2021

Location: Zooml


Many school districts utilize the return to play protocol for returning to physical education. Unfortunately, this means RTPE won't start until the student is symptom free. This could mean a student might not be involved in their PE class for weeks. This can result in a student having anxiety over missing out on being with their friends in PE, as well as worrying about the impact on their PE grade. Also, research shows that subsymptom threshold aerobic exercise is associated with a quicker recovery for people who have suffered a concussion. The Concussion Initiative of the Brain Injury Association of New York State created a committee made up of people involved in physical education to study the problem and designed a protocol that schools can use.
