In addition to Cellie, the namesake plush toy — or critter, as some of the researchers who work with Cellie call it — the kit also includes a pack of “cancer coping cards” and a booklet for caregivers.

A study of physicians’ knowledge of and attitudes toward concussion management practices points to the need for improved concussion-specific training and infrastructure to support optimal patient care. The findings, recently published online in Pediatrics, led The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to create a new “medical home” model for managing adolescent and pediatric concussion.
