Welcome Dr Marelise Badenhorst for the next stage of our evaluation of the IOC medical consensus statements. Marelise and Lauren are currently conducting interviews in South Africa and Australia.
Since 2014, ACRISP and Rugby Australia have worked together to establish a strong injury surveillance program. We are now ready to take it one step further to maximise the outputs for athletes, coaches and medical staff.
