Course Description

This fourth annual hockey medicine course will address the safety, health issues, injuries, and treatment surrounding the sport of hockey with application to professional and recreational players of all ages. Given that sports participation, especially in hockey, has been growing over the years, a greater number of injuries have occurred as a direct result of hockey participation. Hockey injuries range from minor cuts and bruises to life threatening trauma caused by blunt and/or penetrating injuries, and this warrants the need for a greater level of education to health provides involved in the sport. By educating and training providers to adopt evidence based techniques, this activity is certain to improve outcomes across patient demographics and correct health disparities. Through hands on demonstrations as well as case study presentations, the course will cover a broad range of topics related to the sports medicine of hockey injuries.
