ImPACT® Designates Shift Concussion Management, Inc., an "Ontario Center of Excellence"
PITTSBURGH, Aug. 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Shift Concussion is the only provider in Canada to obtain this unique designation. The designation recognizes Shift for taking a leading-edge approach and delivering the highest standards of care for concussion management, using ImPACT's globally recognized state-of-the-art Concussion Management Model.
"We've recognized Shift Concussion as an "Ontario Center of Excellence" because Shift Concussion has demonstrated an unsurpassed commitment to becoming the best-in-class concussion management clinical provider in Ontario," said Michael Wahlster, chief executive officer, ImPACT. "The leadership at Shift has set an outstanding example for how clinicians can work with both ImPACT and other medically-accepted resources to offer the best possible combination of care to patients."
To be named an Ontario Center of Excellence, the entire clinical team at Shift Concussion participated in intensive ImPACT training in the implementation of all aspects of ImPACT's Concussion Management Model. Additionally, ImPACT conducted site visits at several Shift clinical locations, observed ImPACT test administration, concussion management practices and observed Shift's use of additional scientifically validated treatment protocols.
Specifically, Shift's Guelph, Ontario clinic has been named the "Ontario Center of Excellence," which also designates the location as a center for education on the diagnosis and management of concussions in the province.
Shift also works closely with stopconcussions, a concussion awareness organization founded by former Philadelphia Flyers captain, Keith Primeau and former European hockey player, Kerry Goulet to educate the public on the importance of proper recognition and management of head injuries.
