Medical Protocols for Match Day Medical Staff

Welcome to the World Rugby Concussion Management Rugby Team Doctor’s online resource.

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

This module is NOT intended to test your medical knowledge. Its aim is to outline the responsibilities of medical staff in Rugby by referencing current World Rugby Laws, Regulations and Guidelines and to provide training for doctors involved with elite teams in use of the World Rugby Head Injury Assessment tool and process.

At the end of each chapter, you will be asked to complete a short list of multiple choice questions to test your knowledge. When you've correctly answered the questions for all chapters, you'll be able to download your awareness certificate.
