Upcoming Opportunity for Member Involvement with ACSM Position Stands

ACSM has recently improved the procedures for developing position stands to ensure that they are produced using evidence-based methodology based on the highest quality research evidence.

Our new evidence based protocol also allows for greater member involvement in position stand development. In the near future, ACSM will train a cadre of member volunteers as ACSM- credentialed evidence analysts. Evidence analysts will participate in the development of position stands by reviewing the individual studies to be included in a position stand, grading the studies for quality and freedom from bias, and extracting information from the studies to be housed in our new evidence library and resource center, MOSAIC. Thus, members who become credentialed evidence analysts not only have the opportunity to participate in advanced training in systematic review and evidence-based practice methodology, but they will significantly contribute to the development of ACSM’s highly influential position stands.

In September, a call for evidence analysts will appear in SMB. That announcement will provide detailed information regarding specific responsibilities of credentialed evidence analysts, necessary qualifications and how to apply. more
