The IOC’s Medical Commission, an ECSS affiliated since 2010, has recently worked with an international cast of the world’s leading experts on the creation of a must-have tool for all those involved in assessing and treating athletes with injuries sustained in sport. The new publication, entitled “The IOC Manual of Sports Injuries: An Illustrated Guide to the Management of Injuries in Physical Activity”, is targeted at primary care and A&E physicians, general physical therapists, coaches, nurses and physicians' assistants.

The editor, Roald Bahr, a Professor at the Oslo Sports Trauma Research Centre and a member of the IOC Medical Commission’s Medical & Science group, explains: “This book is really meant to be a handy, practical tool, for the office or for your bag when accompanying your athletes in training or competition. It is about taking care of your athletes in the best way possible.”
