Occupational Therapist’s Role in the Screening and Assessment of People with Concussion: Evaluation

Presenter: Moriah H. Grant

Every year about 160,000 Canadians sustain a brain injury (Brain Injury Canada, 2018) and most of these are mild traumatic brain injuries, often called concussions. Occupational therapists are key members of the interprofessional team for people who have sustained a concussion. This webinar will provide an overview of what a concussion is, and why early diagnosis and treatment is important. This webinar will focus on the screening tools and assessment tools that occupational therapists can use in their clinical practice.


After taking part in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain why early diagnosis and treatment of concussion is important.
  2. Identify screening tools to use in the clinic to assist with recognition of concussion.
  3. Select assessment tools to use with people who have sustained a concussion for the pillars of occupational therapy practice (i.e. cognition, somatosensory, vision and balance).
