FSR CONCUSSION PROTOCOL
The Recognise and Remove Directive from World Rugby means that any player in the non-elite level of rugby who is suspected of displaying symptoms of concussion must be immediately removed from the field of play and take no further part in the match.
The Concussion Assessment Tool 5 has been developed by medical experts following Concussion Symposiums organised by World Rugby, FIFA, IIHF, FEI and the IOC. It provides guidelines for non-medics to follow on the touchline to determine whether a player has a suspected concussion.
The World Rugby Concussion Guidance Document provides guidance and information to persons involved in the non-elite level of rugby regarding concussions and suspected concussions.
It provides further information on concussion management as well as useful information concerning return to play guidelines.
