KSCP Goal

Making sports in Kansas safer is the goal of the Kansas Sports Concussion Partnership, a project sponsored by the Kansas Medical Society. The Kansas Legislature provided momentum to KSCP’s work when it passed a bill in April 2011 (HB 2182) requiring a MD or DO to authorize a student athlete’s return to practice and play following a suspected concussion.

To achieve KSCP’s goal, concussion assessment tool, education guidelines and this website were created by a team of Kansas health care professionals with a special interest in head injuries —trauma surgeons, sports and family medicine physicians, neurologists, neuropsychologists and athletic trainers.
