Telemedicine effective in assessing, managing adolescent concussion

June 26, 2017

PHILADELPHIA —  When contact between practitioners and athletic trainers is facilitated through telemedicine for the assessment of concussion in adolescents, both the time and distance to a specialist is reduced, improving satisfaction with care for providers treating this population, according to a recent presentation at the annual meeting of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.

“Using this technology is not only cost-effective, but it increases the number of providers that can manage concussions,” Cydne Marckmann, DNP, ARNP, FAANP, from the Frontier Nursing University and the University of Washington, said in an interview with Infectious Diseases in Children. “This gets kids back to school quicker and helps manage any pitfalls that may come along the way.”
