Silent contributors to injury - illness - performance, 18-19 March 2016 : Session 1 - Planning periodisation : A practical guide to implementing load management as a injury and illness prevention tool: Lessons learned from 27 sports / Mick Drew.
Available for Clearinghouse for Sport member groups B, C, D & E only. Presenter : Mick is a Senior Sports Physiotherapist at the Australian Institute of Sport where he currently undertakes and coordinates research within the Physical Therapies department. This role includes overseeing the epidemiology research and development within the Athlete Management System. His main research focus currently is in training load and their role in injury and illness prevention. Mick is an Adjunct to the the University of Canberra and an Adjunct Research Fellow at the Australian Centre for Research into Injury in Sport and its Prevention (ACRISP) who are recognised as an IOC Research Centre for the Prevention of Injury and Protection of Athlete Health. This Symposium was jointly presented by Sports Medicine Australia ACT and the Australian Institute of Sport. Sub themes for the conference include: Planning Periodisation – Training errors, planning for performance, monitoring injury/illness/performance, planning for the gaps and travel ; Pathology Specific – Muscle, tendon, pain, mental health, gender ; Medical – Iron, Viral, respiratory, infectious diseases, vitamins, probiotic, immunology, genetic development ; Physical – sleep, body composition, energy availability, making weight, gender. Abstract : Injuries negatively affect the performance of athletes in sports teams and remaining injury and illness free has the potential to maximise athletic success. Training loads contribute to development of sports injuries but they are rarely considered in a sports injury prevention framework. Furthermore, the implementation of these systems is infrequently aligned to proven implementation strategies. This talk will discuss the lessons learnt from implementing load management across a wide variety sports, sharing both the wins and losses along the way.
