NYS Athletic Trainers’ Association Collaborating with NYS Academy of Family Physicians at Annual Winter Weekend Conference
Date:12/20/2012

Lake Placid, NY (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

The New York State Athletic Trainers’ Association (NYSATA) has recently joined the sports medicine planning committee for the NYS Academy of Family Physicians (NYSAFP) Winter Weekend conference which will be held January 17-20, 2013 in Lake Placid, NY, and will have certified members helping with the sports medicine session on Saturday, January 19. “I think it will be a great opportunity to assist primary care physicians in areas where certified athletic trainers perform the most and showcase our skill-set to these physicians so that they can further realize the benefit of having athletic trainers (ATs) in the high school setting,” says Rick Knizek, MS, ATC who will be moderating the session, entitled Acute Musculoskeletal Injuries and Examination.

In addition to lead presenter Scott Darling, MD, of University Sports Medicine in Buffalo, NY and two other presenting physicians, Knizek will be assisted by Bob O’Malley, MEd, ATC, CES in guiding attendees as they practice their orthopedic evaluation techniques. O’Malley, who will also be coordinating the exhibit booth for NYSATA, stated, "This weekend will give the NYSATA and the NYSAFP more face-to-face time and help develop the complimentary relationship of the professions."

NYSATA’s exhibit booth will include fact sheets on the heath care expertise and skills of athletic trainers, the NYSATA Concussion in Youth & High School Sports cd, information on concussion management - specifically relating to the NYS Education Department’s Guidelines for Concussion Management in the School Setting, and suggestions on how physicians and athletic trainers can work together to optimize safe and efficient return-to-play, not only for concussions but for all types of sports injuries. "The Winter Weekend event will go a long way to enhance the medical care of high school students across New York State," O’Malley continued. Knizek added, “I think it will also be a great opportunity to share the relationship model that athletic trainers, such as myself, have with school physicians in hopes that others will want to duplicate it in their schools and communities.”

NYSATA is pleased to have this level of involvement and eager for the relationship with NYSAFP to grow and develop in the future. Rick Zappala, ATC, the sports medicine planning committee representative for NYSATA, stated, “It is our hope that we will have more input and a greater level of participation as we move forward.” ATs who attend the entire weekend event can earn 12-14 continuing education units (CEUs).
