Develop an Action Plan

A medical action plan for concussion management calls for a follow-up plan for symptomatic patients. A physician may decide to monitor the patient in the office setting or may refer the patient to a concussion specialist.

Serial evaluation of the concussion is critical as symptoms may resolve, worsen, or ebb and flow depending upon many factors (e.g., cognitive/physical exertion, other medical conditions). Referral to a specialist can be particularly valuable to help manage certain aspects of the patient’s condition.
