Do not be a head case - take the course.
New online concussion education courses have been launched, aimed at players, coaches and match officials for the community game. We would encourage everyone to do the courses to help raise awareness of concussion throughout the game.
Available at www.EnglandRugby.com/Headcase
The 30 minute courses will take you through why it's important to manage concussion properly, and how everyone has a role in protecting and helping players through their recovery and return to play. The courses also highlight the potential and serious consequences of the injury.
Based on the "4Rs" - Recognise, Remove, Recover and Return – the courses reinforce the messages that have been delivered through the ‘Headcase’ website, Rugby Ready courses and promotional materials over the last 18 months.
