Welcome to the Medical section of the World Rugby website, designed for all the rugby family, players, coaches, officials, medical staff and the general public alike. We work to make the game as enjoyable, safe and beneficial as possible for all stakeholders.
Our concussion section contains guidance, education and management information. There are also education modules available for the general population, medical staff and elite match-day medical staff.
Our injury-management section provides information on injury prevention measures (including player load) and injury surveillance. The Mindset module is a resource for doctors and medical staff to identify and direct treatment for those struggling with mental health issues.
We also include all of World Rugby’s published research and COVID guidelines.
