Justifying Your Value as an Athletic Trainer – 316

Forrest Pecha was part of a research team that took data from one part time athletic trainer in a high school.  They calculated the dollar value patients would have paid if the services provided were billed to an insurance company under the accountable care model.

The article was published in NATA News

I want to convince my school board that intermediate / middle school athletes need full time athletic training services.  Injury evaluation, rehab plans, concussion management, proper handling of physical forms, injury prevention through proper weight training.  These are most of the points I have, but one of the topics that matters most to the district is cost and liability.

I have heard Dave Ramsey say that the person with the most knowledge and patience will usually win the negotiations.  This is our source of knowledge, and we basically have until I retire so patience may not be a factor either.

Scott Galloway leads the DeSoto Sports Medicine team where they currently have 7 staff athletic trainers.  You can read his bio and see all the things he has accomplished in Athletic Training, but basically he is a politician in Athletic Training form.

DeSoto ISD NATA News  Great article from Scott about improving your position

Dr. Josh Yellen, program Director at the University of Houston Masters of Athletic Training program and is also a member of the NATA Professional Responsibility Committee.

Do you desire to improve the level of care provided to your athletes by increase the number of qualified hands to treat injuries?  Listen to the show and let me know what you have done that works.

Coordinated School Health Interview – 270

Buy clomid online

We are broadcasting live and interviewing the speakers of the Zanaflex 4mg's Sports Medicine Update.  It is a great way to continue improving your athletic training practice.  There are always new topics, new aspects of old topics and great re-freshers.

We plan to release the lecture and then the interview.  Through the course of the summer the podcasts will be shorter, more frequent, and a lot more raw (less editing).

All the lectures and handouts have been uploaded and are now available on Google Drive.

Legal Concerns in the Secondary Setting – 220

Should students be allowed to tape?  evaluate and ankle with the ATC standing over them?  are we teaching them to act outside of what they are trained to do?  Dr. Yellen is sometimes thought of as an “elitist” in Athletic Training because he says they should basically be first aid and water helpers.  Josh Woodall is current president of SWATA and follows similar guidelines as a full time practicing secondary Athletic Trainer.

Biodex is a great tool to help solve the puzzle.  for most Athletic Trainers in the Secondary Setting it s not an option to have one in school.  However Kevin suggests speaking with the Doctor and Physical Therapist and see if they can not work out an à la carte script for using the equipment
