In California they use the same recommendation from the NFHS about concussions and removal from play. However they use the term ‘licensed health care provider’. Which in this state and 46 others would include the profession of athletic training. Not in California and two other states.
California needs to get with it and get the athletic training profession recognized and in a position like 47 other states. Athletic trainers are on the forefront of the concussion battle, and need to be used as such.
