REAP: The Benefits of Good Concussion Management provides an overview of REAP (Reduce, Educate, Accommodate, Pace)-a community-based multidisciplinary team approach/strategy to communicate/collaborate with the concussed student/ athlete and multidisciplinary teams (school-physical, school-academic and the medical team), from the time of injury through the return to play and/or return to learning. The DVD also discusses a progression for team members to follow throughout assessment/sideline evaluation, family communication, medical referral, educate student/athlete, contact school academic personnel, perform daily symptom/balance screening and once asymptomatic supervise gradual return to play/learning.
