About YSCP

The program, the first of its kind in Canada, is a collaboration between primary care providers and specialists and will establish standardized guidelines for concussion management for all health care providers across the Peterborough Networked Family Health Team.

The Youth Sports Concussion Program is being administered by Primary Health Care Services of Peterborough in partnership with physiatrist Dr. Derek Krete. Although there is no government support for this initiative, this is made possible through the efforts of our local health care practitioners, financial support from community fundraising and the efforts of the Greater Peterborough Health Services Foundation.
