Screening and monitoring of concussions (mild traumatic brain injury)

A concussion, also known as a mild traumatic brain injury, is an injury that occurs following a blow to the head or impact to the body that causes sudden movement of the brain inside the skull.

For more information, see Concussion (Mild Traumatic Brain Injury).

How does screening and monitoring of mild concussion work in the Mauricie and Centre-Du-Québec region?

The screening and follow-up program for mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) offers the services of a clinical nurse specializing in head injuries, a psychologist and a medical consultant.

The assessment and follow-up will be carried out by a clinical nurse in the form of a telephone interview. During these interviews, advice and useful information will be given to you to help you reduce and manage your symptoms well. The medical advisor may also be involved at different stages of the monitoring process. If necessary, follow-up by the psychologist can also be offered.
