To help better understand the issue, this Ontario Injury Compass presents emergency department (ED) visit data for injuries related to falls involving skateboards and in-line skates for those 0-14 years, as well as strategies to prevent injuries resulting from a fall.

CATT Online provides free concussion toolkits, an online Concussion Response Tool, and downloadable resources. Developed by the BCIRPU, the CATT tool is a great resource for practitioners and residents of Ontario.
