CEC Announces Name Change
NATA
The Continuing Education Committee has changed its name to the Professional Development Committee. In order to maintain and expand their skills, the goal for health care professionals used to be attaining continuing education. Now the goal is focusing on professional development and concentrated learning across the lifespan of your career. Continuing education is no longer a goal in itself, but rather a means to attain professional development.

Believing it important to stay up-to-date with current terminology and to help ATs focus on concentrated learning and developing learning plans, the Continuing Education Committee determined, and the BOD agreed, that a name change was appropriate.

Webinar on Patient-Rated Outcome Measures
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.

NATA Seeks Proposals for Prevention, Risk Reduction of Falls in Seniors
NATA is seeking high quality research proposals to assess the effectiveness of AT interventions in the prevention and risk reduction of slip-and-fall injuries in Medicare-eligible populations. NATA has set aside up to $220,000 to fund the "Athletic Training Outcomes and Cost Containment within Healthcare Facilities" research.

The research may be conducted in an extended care, community-based or similar health care settings. The study may be multi-centered or single-centered. Any health care professional, researcher or educator may submit a proposal.

Grant proposals are due by Oct. 1, and notification of award will be by Jan. 15. For more information, contact Paul Ullucci at Paul@risportsmed.com. For administrative details, contact Cate Brennan at cate@nata.org. To receive a copy of the RFP, contact pariet@nata.org.

1.35 Million Youths a Year Have Serious Sports Injuries
USA Today
Occasional bumps and bruises are expected when kids play sports, but for more than 1.35 million children last year a sports-related injury was severe enough to send them to a hospital emergency department. Sprains and strains, fractures, contusions, abrasions and concussions top the list of sports-related ER diagnoses for kids ages 6 to 19 — at a cost of more than $935 million each year, according to a report from the non-profit advocacy group Safe Kids Worldwide.

'Hard Knocks' Shows Athletic Trainers Still Have to Battle Players Over Concussion Issue
Yahoo
One reason "Hard Knocks" is so compelling is it does a great job bringing viewers places we generally don't get to go, and that's why the conversation between receiver Marvin Jones and Bengals athletic trainer Paul Sparling might have been the most interesting part of the episode. It was proof that for all the concussion progress being made in the NFL, there is still a long way to go before players are completely on board.

Medical Daily
In response to the death of high school football player Rasul "Rocky" Clark, who was paralyzed during a game, the state of Illinois will require all in-state high schools to offer catastrophic insurance coverage for student athletes. The move is an expensive one, but after Clark's school district's $5 million insurance plan wasn't enough to cover his injuries alone, the state reviewed its policies.

Early Detection, Appropriate Rest Key to Treating Overuse Injuries
Asbury Park Press
At the beginning of every school year, athletic trainer Eric Nussbaum of Colts Neck, N.J., sees an influx of freshman athletes whose bodies get shocked by the amount of conditioning and training they've endured while preparing for the fall sports season. "It happens without fail," said Nussbaum, past president of the Athletic Trainers' Society of New Jersey. "For some kids, it’s a big transition to go from middle school to high school sports, especially if they haven't done anything for most of the summer. They're the ones ripe for overuse injuries."

Concussion Education Becomes Priority in Newcastle, Okla.
The Oklahoman
Kerali Davis thought her son was messing with her. How could he forget how to do math? But then the Newcastle, Okla., mother looked in his eyes. "And I could see he was being completely honest," she said. "I just couldn't believe it." The culprit: a concussion in a football game. That experience completely changed Kerali Davis, and now, she's trying to change the culture in her small town south of Oklahoma City — and beyond.

USA Today
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is extra cautious with Robert Griffin III, limiting the second-year quarterback to seven-on-seven drills as he rebounds from reconstructive surgery on his right knee. No wonder: The first two-plus weeks of training camp have resulted in at least 15 season-ending knee injuries. Welcome to the summer of the torn ACL. Even Atlanta Falcons President Rich McKay said he thinks "there have been more ACL injuries than ever."
