It also presents advanced topics of pathophysiology and psychological response to sport injury to better prepare students for continued study.

Written by a team of respected athletic training educators with experience at the professional and collegiate levels, the text breaks new ground by condensing key concepts to a comprehensive level while not overwhelming students with content that will be addressed in depth in advanced courses. Numerous features assist students in learning the fundamentals: • Each of the six parts opens with a discussion of the competencies that are covered in that part and concludes with a reference list of those competencies by description and number, making it easy to monitor the knowledge required. • A companion web resource contains 41 clinical proficiency exercises, carefully chosen to complement the introductory level of the text and align with required educational objectives. The modules may be completed online or printed, and cross-references at the end of each chapter guide students to the appropriate modules to apply the chapter content. • Case studies sprinkled throughout the text demonstrate real-world situations and include critical thinking questions that underscore principles of rehabilitation and exercise. • Full-color photographs depict specific conditions and techniques, giving students an accurate picture of real practice. • For instructors, a complete set of ancillaries assists in preparing and presenting lectures, leading class discussion, and planning assignments and assessments.

The rest of the text introduces general information about life as an athletic trainer, such as training, education, licensure, certification, employment opportunities, and the roles in a sports medicine team. The core of the text then focuses on required knowledge and skills related to injury prevention, injury recognition and classification (including region-specific examination strategies, basic objective tests, physical exam strategies, and injury mechanisms), acute care, therapeutic interventions, and the role of pharmaceuticals in the healing process. To round out the text, it addresses health care administration and discusses strategies for the management of athletic training programs. With learning features and a web resource that integrate clinical learning into an introductory course, Core Concepts in Athletic Training and Therapy is the essential resource for current and future athletic trainers. Long after its first use, it will prove a valuable reference for athletic training students as they progress through the curriculum, prepare for certificiation, and begin careers in the profession.

Nationally-recognized athletic training organizations have identified leadership knowledge, skills, and competencies as essential for athletic trainers to be successful in the current healthcare environment and to help advance the profession of athletic training. However, little is currently known regarding the methods and the extent of leadership development in athletic training professional preparation programs. The purpose of this mixed-methods study was to examine student and faculty perspectives of the extent and ways that athletic training professional preparation programs address leadership in their curricula. Data were obtained via surveys completed by 71 students and 83 athletic training professional level program directors. Overall, both groups of participants affirmed that it was important that leadership was addressed in athletic training professional programs. Several formal and informal uses of leadership development methods (e.g., peer-learning, professional organizational involvement, textbooks, and workshops) were examined. The many ways in which leadership was addressed within the respondents' athletic training programs suggests that the profession is comparable with other allied health professions when it comes to informal leadership education in both curricular and clinical portions of athletic training programs. Formal leadership training was reported to be at low levels by students and program directors, a deficit that is recommended to be addressed as more programs consider converting from a Bachelor's degree level to a Master's degree level professional program.
