New Concussion Awareness Training Tool website (CATT) Website Launched

What do you know about concussions?

Dr. Shelina Babul’s cattonline contains courses and information on recognition, treatment, and management of concussion.

Parents, coaches, health care providers, and school professionals can now access the latest information on concussions on the refreshed Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT) website.

The three toolkits—CATT for Medical Professionals, CATT for Parents, Players, and Coaches, and CATT for School Professionals—have been combined into one website, which contains more information about concussions, new pages for the e-learning courses, a section for latest news, and more.

Led by Dr. Shelina Babul, Clinical Associate Professor at UBC’s Department of Pediatrics and Associate Director/Sports Injury Specialist with the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit at BC Children’s Hospital, CATT first launched their course for medical professionals in 2013, and added additional courses for coaches, parents of players, and school professionals shortly after.

Dr. Babul and her team have also refreshed the look and functionality of the SCAT5 and Child SCAT5 tools for use by medical and licensed health care professionals for use in office or on any desktop, tablet, or smartphone.

CATT is based upon the established principles of the Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport. The 2017 Concussion in Sport Group (CISG) Consensus Statement builds on the principles outlined in previous concussion statements and aims to develop better understanding of sport-related concussion. The e-learning module for medical professionals will be updated to reflect the new standards by Spring 2018, with the others to follow.

Users can also access the latest concussion information on CATT’s Twitter or Facebook pages. The team would like to extend a special thanks to the team at SIOLab for their diligent and meticulous work.

Visit the new today.
