Medical Services and Concussion Policy

Online Incident Reporting System 

Online Incident Reporting System

From 21st January 2021, the new PCA online incident reporting form must be completed for ALL incidents, including falls, concussion, non-horse related incidents, non-fall related incidents etc. 

Concussion

The PCA online incident reporting form must be completed for all suspected and diagnosed concussions.  Riders with a diagnosed or suspected concussion will receive a mandatory suspension and must not participate in ridden Pony Club Tasmania activities for 21 days after the incident UNLESS they have medical clearance.  

To clear the mandatory suspension prior to 21 days, the original incident form must be signed by a doctor and the doctor must complete THIS PCA CONCUSSION FORM to indicate they have not diagnosed concussion at the consultation.
Please read the PCA Concussion Policy

 

Medical Services at One Day Events

PCT have now adopted the EA Medical Services policy for all One Day Events and clubs must use the EA forms for planning Medical Services at ODEs.  Your chosen Medical Provider must complete the forms, declaring they are compliant with all the EA requirements.  Your selected provider must also be approved by your TD. 

These forms are to be completed by your Medical Provider:
1.  Medical Provider Pre-Event Checklist and Service Agreement (EA Form 6)
The Medical Provider is to complete and return this form with their quote.  They must also meet the requirements on the Audit Form (EA Form 7). 

2.  Medical Provider Pre-Event Audit (EA Form 7)
This form has two sections.
Part A - this must be completed prior to the event.  It should be returned with the Checklist/Service Agreement (EA Form 6)
Part B - this must be also completed prior to the event, especially Item 5 Equipment Audit.  Some items (eg Item 3 briefings) may be completed on the morning of the event.

 You may obtain quotes from and select any compliant medical provider in Tasmania as long as they declare their compliance by signing the attached forms.   We encourage you to obtain quotes from multiple providers as costs do vary depending on the zone and where the provider is based.
