From Accident to Ambulance: Emergency Action Plans for the Injured Athlete

Course: #4875Level: Intermediate 2 Hours
Live WebinarFri, Jun 14, 2024 at 10:00 am EDT

Emergency management of injuries in sport should be handled by a trained medical professional. An emergency action plan (EAP) is necessary for any school or university with venues where athletes exercise. An emergency action plan should be specific to your organization, venues, resources, and personnel. Sports medicine professionals must be competent in developing, implementing, and reviewing EAPs to protect athletes and reduce liability for the individual healthcare professional and institution. The instructor will provide an overarching review of the literature regarding the management of establishing emergency action plans to allow the participant to become proficient in establishing procedures and identifying personnel and resources to create EAPs.
