Barrow Brainbook - Dignity Health Concussion Network

Barrow Brainbook - Dignity Health Concussion Network

The CIF has partnered with the Dignity Health Concussion Network to provide student-athletes with the knowledge and tools to prevent and identify concussions.

This program offers concussion education through an online curriculum pre- and post-concussion assessment testing, and telehealth software that gives athletic trainers and physicians 24/7 access to consultation with a neurologist specializing in concussions and traumatic brain injuries.

The concussion curriculum, Barrow Brainbook, was developed by Dr. Cárdenas from Barrow Neurological Institute at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Ariz.

Barrow Brainbook is a web-based learning tool developed specifically for high school athletes. Designed to resemble a sportscasting show, it offers students a fun-to-navigate series of educational activities and videos. The program uses videos from local high-profile athletes and a Q&A format which focuses on prevention, recognition, and appropriate responses to concussions.
