Updated and invigorated, Management Strategies in Athletic Training, Third Edition, helps readers deal creatively with the management challenges athletic trainers face on the job. Like its predecessor, the new edition uses a case-study approach to teach students theories of organization and administration and to apply them to real-world situations in the profession of athletic training.
The text, part of Human Kinetics' Athletic Training Education Series, is an excellent resource for athletic trainers who want comprehensive knowledge of management theory and practice. The book's organization strategies can also be applied beyond athletic training to a variety of fields related to sports medicine, making it a valuable resource for any sports medicine professional.
In addition to 10 updated chapters, Management Strategies in Athletic Training, Third Edition, offers new sections on finding a job and planning conferences, plus current coverage of
-health insurance concerns,
-new administrative standards from the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA),
-application of the Americans with Disabilities Act,
-computer hardware and software applications,
-reimbursement for athletic training services, and
-emergency action plans.
Designed to encourage critical thinking, Management Strategies in Athletic Training, Third Edition, opens and closes each chapter with realistic and fascinating case studies presenting real-world dilemmas faced by athletic trainers. Students are challenged to analyze and apply the principles in the chapters to solve the kinds of problems they'll face from day to day as professionals.
To support learning, the text includes tools such as chapter objectives, boldfaced key terms, review statements for each major section, a running glossary as well as a complete glossary at the end of the book, chapter summaries, sample administrative forms that readers can both study and adapt to their own work situations, review questions, and an index. Special elements and appendixes also provide direction for deeper study by referring students to Internet resources, other Athletic Training Education Series texts, sample forms for athletic training program analysis, and material on regulations and ethics in athletic training.
The instructor guide is loaded with additional case studies, course projects, chapter worksheets, and a sample course syllabus, all of which can be used for organizing classes, testing students' knowledge, and creating exciting learning experiences. A test bank also is included.
