AUTHOR(S): Dr. Lakha Singh
The present study was conducted to determine The Athletic Training Practice-Based Research Network: A National Model for point-of-care Sports Injury and Outcomes Documentation to Improve Athlete Health and Wellness. Despite significant benefits of sport participation related to the physical, mental, and social development of adolescent athletes, sport-related injuries such as sprains, strains, and concussions are a significant risk in this vulnerable population. This paper discusses that Athletic trainers are highly-educated physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists who are often the first medical professional to assess and treat a sport-related injury or illness including sprains, fractures, concussions, and life-threatening conditions such as exceptional heat illness, spinal cord injury, and cardiac arrest. Under the direction of a physician, athletic trainers provide patient care in a variety of settings including high schools, colleges, military, and industrial facilities. Unlike most healthcare professionals, athletic trainers are readily and easily accessible to their patients.
