Spine Injury in Sport Group

The Spine Injury in Sport Group (SISG) was developed out of the prior Inter-Association Task Force on Pre-Hospital Care of the Spine-Injured Athlete. NATA partnered with The Sports Institute at UW Medicine, University of Washington Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center and NCAA to participate in and assist with sponsoring the project. The SISG used the international concussion group and their consensus statements as a model of development.
