Week 3 Discussion First Aid

For this discussion please define an injury in a sport of your choosing. Then use information in Chapters 4-6 in your textbook as foundation to describe the physical assessment you would perform including history, inspection, and touch (also known as SOAP–subjective, objective, assessment, and plan).  Do NOT choose in injury that someone else has already chosen.  You must write your post on a unique injury. Put the name of the injury in your post title.   You must use an outside resource as support for your post; this can be a journal article, website, or other public video.

  1. Step 1: Please create a new message in which you can post your initial thread.  Put the sport and type of injury as the “title” at the top (for example, “rugby subdural hematoma” as the thread topic and title).  Use the library database or internet to find information about how to assess this injury using either the HIT or SOAP process. Share this information with your classmates in an initial post of at least 250 words. Please also include citations within the post body and a reference list at the end.
  2. Step 2: Read your classmates’ posts and reply to at least two of them on their initial post threads.  Your replies should be substantive and “improve” conversation.  These two peer replies must each be at least  100 words long.
  3. Step 3: If the instructor asks you a question in your initial post thread, a thoughtful reply is expected (and part of your forum grade).  There is no word count expectation for these replies; the goal is to show reflection and application of the concepts being learned.
