In Chapter 1 members of the health care team are discussed. For this discussion please address the following:
Step 1: Pick a sport you would like to coach, a sport you would like to train athletes for, or a sport you would like to work in from a rehabilitation/injury prevention position. Please create a new message in which you can post your initial post thread. Describe a common injury found in that sport (do NOT pick an injury that someone else has already chosen–sports may be repeated with different injuries. INJURIES MAY NOT BE REPEATED.) Put the sport name and injury in the title of your post so your classmates do not repeat it. In the text box, describe the coaches role in addressing first aid for the injury. Next, describe the roles of two different sports medicine team professionals who have a responsibility in diagnosing, treating, or preventing the injury. Your initial post must be a minimum of 250 words long.
Step 2: Read your classmates’ posts and reply to at least two of them on their initial post threads. Your replies should be substantive and “improve” conversation. These two peer replies must each be at least 100 words long.
Step 3: If the instructor asks you a question in your initial post thread, a thoughtful reply is expected (and part of your forum grade). There is no word count expectation for these replies; the goal is to show reflection and application of the concepts being learned.
