Medical Protocols for Match Day Medical Staff

This resource has been developed to provide Rugby Team Doctors and Match Day Medical Staff with an understanding of their responsibilities and to highlight some of the issues that they will face in the course of their work.

Concussion is an issue that affects all sports and it is important that everyone in Rugby recognises the symptoms of concussion and removes from playing or training any player with clear or suspected symptoms.

Medical Staff working at an elite level must complete this module before going on to complete the Concussion Management for Match Day Medical Staff using the HIA Protocol module.
