Description

This publication emphasizes that schools and providers should encourage student athletes to complete both Adolescent Well Visits and Sports Physicals, as there is enough overlap between the two methods that a health care provider could complete both assessments at the same time. The report provides points of comparison to maximize coordination in parental involvement, the health information sought during a pre-visit questionnaire, and the physical exam. It shares recommendations for providers on modifying either type of examination to include elements of both. This coordination will help limit a student’s absence from school and sports, and will ensure exams cover all aspects of a student’s health during an Adolescent Well Care visit or sports physical.
