Set-piece approach for medical teams managing emergencies in sport
Any sport may experience injuries from time to time, but it is crucial that both the players and the team are equipped to handle them effectively. One of the sports where injuries frequently occur is football (soccer). Football-related traumatic and non-traumatic emergencies must be recognized and treated appropriately, so it is crucial that the medical staff in charge of the players is prepared.
FIFA suggests the Poster for Emergency Action Planning—a standardized methodology for medical teams managing emergencies in sports—exactly for this reason.
