The National Athletic Trainers’ Association released a new position statement “to present athletic trainers with recommendations for the content and administration of the preparticipation physical examination (PPE) as well as considerations for determining safe participation in sports and identifying disqualifying conditions”. The recommendations include items regarding medical and family history, physical examination (i.e., general health screening, cardiovascular screening, neurologic screening, orthopaedic screening, general medical screening, medication use, nutritional assessment, heat- and hydration-related illness risk factors, and mental health considerations), and administration of PPE, determining clearance. The statement also includes a comprehensive literature review.
