An inter-association group has published a consensus statement on the best practices for sports medicine management for secondary schools and colleges.
“This consensus paper is written to help guide superintendents of schools, secondary school athletic directors, college/university athletic department administrators, athletic trainers and team/school physicians by presenting the best practices in sports medicine management in the secondary and collegiate settings. This document outlines important considerations regarding: (1) duties and responsibilities of the athletic trainer and team physician; (2) supervisory relationships and the chain of command within the sports medicine team members; (3) decision-making authority relating to approval for participation of student-athletes, as well as injury management and return to sport participation status following injury/illness; (4) administrative authority for the selection, renewal, and dismissal of related medical personnel; and (5) performance appraisal tools for the sports medicine team.”
The document ends with an Appendix offering “10 Principles to Guide Administration of Sports Medicine-Athletic Training Services.”
