The Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT) is a series of online educational modules and resources with­ the goal of standardizing concussion recognition, diagnosis, treatment, and management. Good concussion management may decrease the risk of brain damage and potentially reduce long-term health issues.

Developed by Dr. Shelina Babul, Associate Director/Sports Injury Specialist with the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit, BC Children’s Hospital, CATT is based upon the established principles of the Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport. The 2017 Concussion in Sport Group (CISG) Consensus Statement builds on the principles outlined in previous concussion statements and aims to develop better understanding of sport-related concussion.

Research and evidence on concussions is evolving and the knowledge base is continually changing. As a result, is updated on a regular basis to provide current information, tools, and resources to support concussion recognition, diagnosis, treatment, and management.

There are 7 CATT online educational modules, and all are available free-of-charge.
