Vision & Mission

The vision for the Concussion Ontario Network: Neuroinformatics to Enhance Clinical care and Translation (CONNECT) Program is for clinicians and researchers in Ontario to flourish as world leaders in achieving the most rapid and complete recovery from concussion and all of its complications.

This vision will be achieved through research that:

  • Recognizes: Discovers the most innovative tools to recognize and diagnose concussion
  • Personalizes: Harnesses advanced computing technology to identify and integrate the most important personal, societal, brain imaging, biological findings to guide treatment across the continuum thus ensuring the right care at the right time to the right patient
  • Maximizes: Tests novel targeted interventions that not only speed recovery but prevent re-injury and the long term problems and late deterioration from concussion

This alliance of expert centres across Ontario will ensure that new knowledge is translated into better diagnosis and care for the benefit of all Ontarians. With our innovative research and knowledge translation we will spawn new inventions, new treatments, and a new class of researchers to place Ontario as a global leader in concussion research and care
