Tackling school sports injury Royal Society of Medicine

We would be very interested to know of anyone researching children’s and young people’s views and experiences of sport and of sports-related injuries, and adults’ perceptions of these topics.

The attached file gives details of an open conference at the Royal Society of Medicine London on 14th September Tackling school sports injury (6 CPD points)

Book your place here: www.rsm.ac.uk/events/EPF04

Registration is now open for this highly-anticipated meeting which will examine the latest research on childhood injury resulting from sport participation.

You will hear a leading panel of interdisciplinary specialists examine governmental policy, socio-cultural aspects and injury surveillance and prevention strategies. You also have the chance to join in with a debate on children’s autonomy and choice in competitive or alternative sports.

If you are working in these areas in any discipline, we hope you will contact us to tell us about your research.
