Apr 15, 2015New Patient-Centered Sports Medicine Website
The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) has started a new website, www.sportsmedtoday.com, to serve as a patient-centered resource for individuals who want to find out more about prevention and treatment of sports injuries.
As reported by Medical News Today, the site includes a continually updated, searchable database of sports injury topics, as well as tip sheets for health care professionals. Additionally, sports medicine experts will serve as contributing authors for the site on a variety of topics.
Other resources on the site, which was launched in conjunction with a new quarterly patient newsletter called Sports Medicine Today, include:
- AMSSM medical podcasts and position statements
- Patient advocacy sites for additional health care resources
- The ability for patients to search for a sports medicine physician by name or zip code
“We saw the need for an interactive, patient-centered site and are excited to offer it to our local and national community members,” said Amy Powell, MD, AMSSM Board of Directors.
