The 5P Team

5P’s greatest strength is its people – a team of devoted individuals driven by passion to improve how clinicians forecast and preventing post-concussive problems in children. Our integrative team represents a large number of disciplines throughout Canada: We have assembled a national team of experts across the full spectrum of mild traumatic brain injury disciplines (pediatric subspecialties of: emergency medicine, sports medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, psychology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and nursing) in order to complete the necessary research to better diagnose, prognosticate and treat PCS in children.
