Prentice, Essentials of Athletic Injury Management (9th ed.). McGraw-Hill. 2013. ISBN 9780078022616. **I will be using the 9th edition. You may be able to reference the 8th edition successfully, however some material may not match up, such as page numbers and topic titles. COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course addresses the basics of prevention, recognition, care, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for injuries to physically active populations. This includes a survey of the following topics: musculoskeletal anatomy; tissue response to injury; nutrition; protective equipment; emergency procedures; environmental concerns; mechanisms of sport injury; injury prevention, assessment, and management; and abnormalities and disabilities as they apply to athletics. COURSE OBJECTIVES: 1. Provide basic knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. 2. Provide basic knowledge of common sports-related trauma, including etiology, pathology, and prognosis. 3. Identify basic physiological principles used in the prevention and care of sports-related trauma. 4. Be able to critically discuss current topics in sports medicine. 5. Introduce principles of scholarly research through article reviews and critically consider the clinical translation of research. ACADEMIC HONESTY, ACADEMIC DISCIPLINE, AND ATTENDANCE POLICIES: To read the Code of Academic Integrity and learn more about the Center for Student Ethics and Standards, visit their website at: http://www.uvm.edu/cses/?Page=ah.html&SM=ahmenu.html Offenses against the Code of Academic Integrity are deemed serious and insult the integrity of the entire academic community. Any suspected violations of the Code are taken very seriously and will be forwarded to the Center for Student Ethics & Standards for further intervention. 1. Attendance: As this is on online class, students are expected to review all course material prepared, and present or submit due materials by the stated date on the syllabus in order to receive participation credit. 2. All students are expected to be professional, courteous, and engage in course discussions. 3. Students and instructors are expected to cultivate an environment conducive to learning. ACADEMIC SUPPORT: In keeping with University policy, any student with a documented disability interesting in utilizing
accommodations should contact ACCESS, the office of Disability Services on campus. ACCESS works with students to create reasonable and appropriate accommodations via an accommodation letter to their professors as early as possible each semester. Contact ACCESS: A170 Living/Learning Center; 802-6567753; firstname.lastname@example.org; or www.uvm.edu/access. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS: Consistent with the University’s policy on intellectual property rights, it is the Rehabilitation and Movement Science department’s policy that teaching and curricular materials (including but not limited to classroom lectures, class notes, exams, handouts, and presentations) are the property of the instructor. Therefore, electronic recording and/or transmission of classes or class notes is prohibited without the express written permission of the instructor. Such permission is to be considered unique to the needs of an individual student (e.g. ADA compliance), and not a license for permanent retention or electronic dissemination to others. EXPECTATIONS: Since this is a 3-credit course in 4 weeks, you should expect to dedicate 3-4 hours per weekday to coursework. This is similar to amount of work we would be doing in a traditional brick-and-mortar course. *PACE: All course material is posted at the start of the course. You can move through the material as fast as you want, with the expectation that you will submit assignments by the stated due dates. I have prepared daily units that will parallel time frames expected for each day, in order to provide a strategy for a pace that allows for review and completion of the material daily.
EVALUATION: Injury Management Handbook: Throughout the course I will be providing you with note templates that will culminate in a succinct packet of the major principles of injury management and prevention. The ultimate goal is to create a personally useful resource for referencing these major principles following the completion of this course. You will be submitting the pages at the end of each week for review as we move along in the course. Article Review: Each student will conduct 1-2 page reviews of three (3) scholarly articles related to topics within the sports medicine profession. Guidelines will be provided on Blackboard. Discussion Board: There will be five short discussion board assignments on Blackboard related to today’s popular topics in sports medicine. Blackboard Quizzes: Required quizzes will be available on Blackboard throughout the duration of the course based on the course notes and readings. These are formative assessments to help you keep up with the reading and interpret the information. Final Project: Each student will be responsible for creating a final project and reflection as related to care and prevention of athletic injuries. This assignment provides the opportunity to share your own personal experience and/or interests and place them in the context of the knowledge you have acquired through the course. Guidelines will be discussed and posted on Blackboard. Grading Scale
