27 August 16:00-19:00 (BST) Para and Adaptive Sports Medicine Free Webinar

About BJSM Live - Para and Adaptive Sports Medicine

Athletes participating in para and adaptive sport have unique medical circumstances that may impact injury and illness prevention and management. However, sport and exercise medicine (SEM) healthcare professionals often do not receive adequate training to care for athletes with disabilities, and the lack of expertise for para and adaptive athletes remains a major healthy disparity in SEM. 

The objective of this BJSM Live webinar is to provide an educational program to upskill healthcare professionals around the world to care for athletes in para and adaptive sport at all levels. The webinar is led by global leaders in Para and Adaptive Sports Medicine caring for athletes at the 2024 Paralympics and in their communities. 

This webinar is FREE to all thanks to the generous support of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM). We are also proud to collaborate with the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC), and American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) to produce a landmark event.
