Promoting Head Safety

As a family physician or pediatrician, how can you provide the best care to your young patients? Start with the latest guidance from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with best practices for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI).

HEADS UP to Healthcare Providers is free online training that provides the most current strategies and resources from the practice-changing recommendations outlined in the CDC Pediatric mTBI Guideline. Upon completing the training, you can earn 2.0 continuing medical education credits through AAP.

TMA members interested in accessing the full-text article, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guideline on the Diagnosis and Management of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Among Children, can get a copy by emailing the TMA Knowledge Center at knowledge[at]texmed[dot]org.

In addition, the CDC’s HEADS UP Resource Center includes an extensive collection of customizable flyers, videos, online training, and games for young athletes, coaches, teachers, school nurses, and parents. There are also instructions on how to easily add this information to the website of a school, youth sports league, or clinic.
