The November CJSM and the PPE

Halloween, El Dia de los Muertos….Guy Fawkes Day!  We end October and roll into November in an exciting way in North America and across the Atlantic…..all the more so here at CJSM, where November 1 marks the publication of our sixth and last issue of the calendar year.  Our crew–ranging from the Editor in Chief in London to our Managing Editor in Canada–can, perhaps, take a few days break and indulge in the candies, dulces, or bonfires, as the case may be.  And the rest of us can enjoy the treat of the new journal.   We have a great issue in store, and I plan on profiling over the next month several of the published studies here in the blog.  The headliner has to be the in-depth view on the athletic preparticipation physical evaluation (PPE):

Advancing the Preparticipation Physical Evaluation:  An ACSM and FIMS Joint Consensus Statement.

Check it out:  it’s free even without a subscription to the journal, for the time being.

I am working on the podcast production phase of an interview I had with the lead author, William Roberts, M.D.;  the final product promises to be a lot of fun and will be broadcast soon. One of the subjects Dr. Roberts and I touched on in that talk was the potential value of the electronic evaluation, or ‘e-PPE.’  To whet your appetite for what is to come, why don’t you take the poll at the top of this post, and let us know if you use an e-PPE in your practice (in Ohio, where I practice, we just started using them with high school athletes this spring).  Then, click on the link above to the study itself.

Stay tuned for the podcast, and be sure to check out the entire new issue.  November is here, and with it the promise of good things in the journal and on the blog.
