Program overview

Dr. Yeates’s research program, which is supported by a CIHR Foundation Grant entitled, “Advancing Concussion Assessment and Treatment in Children and Youth (A-CATChY),” has two core aims. The first is to improve diagnosis and prognosis of mTBI by focusing on assessment.

The second aim of Dr. Yeates’s research program is to develop and test interventions to reduce children’s post-concussive symptoms using a personalized approach that matches treatments to clinical presentation. The interventions will be tested in randomized controlled trials (RCTs), first individually and subsequently in multi-arm RCTs involving promising biomedical treatments (e.g., melatonin, cervico-vestibular therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy).
