Shift offers in-person and interactive training to Health Care Providers on assessment and management strategies, based on the most current and evidence-based literature and clinical expertise. The structure of our program is based around a multi-faceted approach, with several important pills for the complete management of concussion: education, interdisciplinary collaboration, objective assessment markers and individualized rehabilitation strategies.
