In January, Rep Timothy Bishop (D-NY) introduced the Protecting Student Athletes from Concussions Act of 2011 (HR 469), legislation that would allow for the development of concussion management guidelines that address the prevention, identification, treatment, and management of concussions in school-age children. To help members in their advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill, APTA has developed a background paper and position paper on concussion management. APTA members can access these resources on a recently launched Concussion Management Legislation Web page.
