Special Issue Information
Athletic Training embodies a safer approach to work, life, and sport. In light of the emphasis on evidence-based practice, athletic training clinicians are seeking good research to support their clinical practice in creating a safe environment and reducing injury risk. There are three inherent parts of decreasing injury risk: 1) understanding injury epidemiology, 2) determining relevant screening tools, and 3) designing injury prevention interventions. All of these areas have received attention in the literature; however, there is a lack of consistency of injury definitions. Further, additional information is needed to determine and document the effectiveness of clinical screeing tools in assessing injury risk. Injury prevention intervention programs that effectively mitigate risk across multiple populations also need further study. The aim of this Special Issue is to build on the current literature to provide clinicians with strong evidence to support risk assessment, safe environments, and injury prevention.
