The BF Medical Committee publishes draft Concussion Guidelines and welcomes feedback from the fencing community. As a reminder – “If in doubt, sit them out”.
Whilst concussion is not common in fencing it can and does happen. The guidance details the assessment and management of fencers with concussion or potential concussion.
It is intended for community use – for fencers, referees, coaches, first aiders, medical healthcare professionals, fellow team members, team managers, parents/guardians, directoire technique members and competition organisers.
Summary points for (non clinical) members of the community including coaches, club officials and event organisers:
