All members listed for a team do not need to be involved for successful concussion management. An individual, such as an emergency department physician, may only be involved in the initial assessment and suggestion for initiating academic adjustments. Some members may serve roles on various teams. Some schools may have access to only certain individuals suggested for a team. This list is meant to serve as a framework to help pediatricians and others involved with concussion management, possible roles they can serve for a student with a concussion.
