Road to Recovery
As a member of the Canadian Olympic Team’s medical squad you are some of the best sports medicine professionals in the country. You are responsible for getting Canada’s athletes to their events, ready for the competition of their lives. It is your job to assess what you know about your athlete’s injury and to develop a treatment plan to effectively nurse them back to health in time for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Time is tight, and you must use all the various therapies that will possibly help.
Students first read about the work that goes into helping athletes recover from injury, then complete a case where they assess an injury and decide on a best course of action.
The resource includes a case study on injury recovery, charts and tasks for students to complete, and a teacher’s guide providing key learning outcomes and answer keys.
