Oregon NDs Can Now Sign "Return to Play" Forms After Taking Training

Thu, March 08, 2018 12:28 PM | Anonymous

Senate Bill 1547 passed over the weekend, despite a lengthy list of opponents. This bill allows NDs to sign off on "return to play" forms to clear an athlete for play after a head injury. The Legislature moved to include NDs, chiropractors, physical therapists, and occupational therapists to this expanded list of medical professionals.

Please note: Under Senate Bill 1547, NDs and other newly eligible providers will need to undergo a training course put together by Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). This will be an online module with Oregon-specific details around concussion management, and it is currently being created.
