ACC announces new concussion guidelines

Anybody who suffers concussion while playing community sport must have three weeks away from competition under new national guidelines announced by ACC.

And medical clearance is then needed before a return to play under the guidelines, which will come into effect ahead of this year's winter sport season.

They've been introduced to make playing sport safer and the management of concussion simpler.
