Basketball Australia - Concussion Guideline
Advances in sport and medical science have highlighted the need for a change in the way concussion is treated. Basketball Australia acknowledges that many of the instances of concussion will take place in places where a medical practitioner is not immediately available to make an assessment of an athlete who sustains a head injury.
These guidelines have been developed to outline the issues for athletes, coaches, team managers and others responding to athletes who have received a head injury. The purpose of these guidelines is to protect the welfare of athletes and they are not intended to replace medical assessment and treatment.
