ATHLETIC TRAINING

WSU-ICAA CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT PLAN


 

  1. All WSU-ICAA student-athletes will have baseline testing done which includes SCAT3 testing (see SCAT3 baseline) prior to participation in athletic activity.
  2. When a student-athlete sustains a concussion or closed head injury or an athletic trainer is made aware of a potential injury, a field evaluation takes place.  When time allows, an evaluation utilizing the SCAT3 form should be done.
  3. The athletic trainer contacts one of the team physicians to share with them the information gained from the SCAT3 evaluation and to decide whether further referral is needed.
  4. The student-athlete is held out of all athletic activities (practice, competition, weight lifting and conditioning) until cleared by a team physician.
  5. The athletic trainer contacts an academic student service representative to make them aware of the condition of the student-athlete and determine any changes to the student-athlete’s academic schedule.
  6. The student-athlete is taken through the Symptom Tracking Sheet daily until they are asymptomatic, at which time they are taken through a SCAT3 evaluation.
  7. Once the student-athlete is asymptomatic and their results have been reviewed by a team physician, a graduated return-to-play protocol determined by the athletic trainer and team physician will be followed as referenced in the Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport, Zurich, 2012.
