Patient-Rated Outcome Measures Featured
NATA
Kenneth Lam, Sc.D., ATC will be presenting "Patient-rated outcome measures in athletic training: which are most appropriate for our patient population?" at 11 a.m. CT on Sept. 19. As athletic training continues to pursue a culture of evidence-based practice, the concept of clinical outcomes assessment (COA) is becoming the centerpiece of many professional initiatives related to education, research, and clinical practice. Vital to COA is the use of patient-rated outcome measures (PROMs) during patient care. Despite the importance of PROMs, most athletic trainers struggle with the process of identifying the most appropriate PROM for patient care. The purpose of this session is to highlight considerations for selecting a PROM, discuss different the types of PROMs, and identify most appropriate PROMs for a highly functional, physically active patient population.

An athletic trainer who arrived on the scene just before Curro was already monitoring the boy's heart rate and checking for a pulse. Thankfully for 18-year-old Silas Gaines, Curro and the athletic trainer responded rapidly enough to make sure a scary situation had a happy ending.

After a Sprain, Don't Just Walk It Off
The New York Times
Whenever I see a woman walking (or trying to) in stilettos — skinny heels over 3 inches high — my first thought is, "There’s a sprained ankle waiting to happen." An estimated 28,000 ankle injuries occur daily in the United States, most of them through sporting activities, including jogging on uneven surfaces. But while no one suggests remaining sedentary to protect your ankles, experts wisely warn against purposely putting them at risk by wearing hazardous shoes or getting back in the game before an injured ankle has healed.

'No Meat Athletes' Say Diet Increases Performance

"I've been absolutely amazed at what I've been able to do at the age of 42," says Carter, a runner and cyclist, who first adopted a vegetarian diet for health reasons last year before becoming a vegan. It also was at this time that Carter viewed the 2011 documentary "Forks Over Knives," which advocates a whole-foods, plant-based diet.

New Concussion Test Keeps Athletes Safe
WFTV-TV
Concussions are the leading cause of brain damage in sports, especially football. However, researchers at Cleveland Clinic and the University of Rochester found that football players suffer long-term brain changes even in the absence of concussion. In a study of 67 college football players, researchers discovered that the more hits to the head a player had, the higher the levels of a particular brain protein that is known to leak into the bloodstream after a head injury.
