Georgia's newly signed "Return- to-Play Act of 2013" aims to improve the management of concussions in school and recreational leagues around the state.

As part of its role in preventing, diagnosing and treating concussion patients, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta has launched a new online portal equipped with extensive videos and resources to help primary care physicians and first-response caregivers -- coaches, athletic trainers, nurses and families -- provide appropriate and effective care to people impacted by concussions.

Developed by the Children's Concussion Program, the web portal can be accessed at www.choa.org/concussiontools and will help health professionals and athletic leaders recognize and treat concussions using evidence-based tools, guidelines and research. The goal is to prevent serious, long-term injuries that could have been avoided through immediate proper care of a concussion.
