Concussion/ Safe Return to Play Program
Submitted By gpopovich on Thursday, November 12, 2015
  The Quinte Regional Minor Hockey Association has implemented a Concussion/ Safe Return to Play program for all teams and players within the organization.  

The Quinte Regional Minor Hockey Association has implemented a Concussion/ Safe Return to Play program for all teams and players within the hockey organization. At the beginning of the season, all players are required to complete the ImPACT Baseline Test. The ImPACT test (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the most widely used computerized concussion evaluation system which helps to determine how well a brain is functioning. The ImPACT Test provides information such as memory, speed, concentration and reaction time which has been shown effective in the diagnosis and management of concussions.  If a concussion is suspected throughout the season, the baseline report will serve as a comparison to a repeat ImPACT Test.
            When a team trainer suspects a concussion, players are then referred to their family physician.  If players are unable to see their family physician within a reasonable amount of time, Dr. Elias Maraghi (Association Doctor) will see Quinte Red Devil players. After a concussion is diagnosed, players are then required to complete the ImPACT Test 24-72 hours after injury. This test is coordinated and supervised by Quinte’s Head Trainer Jackie Jarrell. The player then takes their testing results to a family physician or Dr. Elias Maraghi which is used as part of their medical assessment for return to play.
