New Toolkit to Help Working Adults Recover From A Concussion

A new concussion toolkit provides guidance on navigating the injury and returning to work, a valuable resource for the more than 7,700 British Columbian adults who are seen in the emergency room for concussion every year.

The Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT) for Workers & Workplaces is a free resource developed by researchers at the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit (BCIRPU) with support from the Provincial Health Service Authority and in partnership with WorkSafeBC. While there is a misconception that concussions only happen to athletes, this tool is intended to be used by people who experience concussion in their everyday lives like falling off a ladder at a worksite, tripping while walking the dog, or getting into a car crash.

CATT for Workers & Workplaces consists of free online resources consisting of an e-learning course and associated materials that workers, their families, and workplaces can use to navigate the return to work process after sustaining a concussion.
