The Third International Conference on Concussion in Sport held in Zurich in 2008 provided an international consensus on concussion in sport. The SCAT 2 presented at the conference was updated to the SCAT 3 concussion assessment tool in 2013. Links to both these tools are also provided below.  These can be printed and kept handy in your office for assessment of athletes with a history of concussion.
