Dustin Fink, a sports trainer, comments on a bill proposed by Sen. Bill Landen that would set care and release guidelines for school athletes who suffer concussions. The bill also seeks to raise awareness about proper treatment for consuccions. Read Fink’s impressions of the bill in his blog: The Concussion.

EXCERPT:

There are a lot of docs that are completely behind in research and management techniques.  The only way to stop the insanity of kids being released too soon is to mandate education, of not only doctors but everyone involved, including athletic trainers.  All must be on the same page so that there is less confusion and less error, which in turn, in my opinion, will lead to better outcomes of this injury.
