The IRFU Reportable Injury Form must be completed by a designated Club/School Official.
An injury that must be reported using this
form is defined as; any injury occurring during rugby training or game, which
requires that the injured player is transported to and/or treated in hospital
and all suspected/confirmed concussions.
The purpose of the form is to
ensure that all injuries are reported to the IRFU and provincial branches and
that a record is kept of these injuries. Your
Club/School should also maintain an Injury report logbook where details of all
injuries are recorded.
The IRFU Reportable Injury Form is also a method
of data collection for the IRFU.
It is important to note that by
filling in the form and forwarding it to the IRFU, the club/school official is
not handing over responsibility to the IRFU for the care or management of the
effected player. It remains the responsibility of the club/school official to
follow up on their player and report any serious incidents to their province.
(See www.irishrugby.ie/concussion for further
information on concussion.)
