For the Team Management, team leaders, tour guides and supporting parents, it is crucial to be able to access critical medical information of the athletes if something should happen.
It is the Team Management that most often must provide first-line assistance or contact health personnel if a situation arises. Knowing whether an athlete is healthy, on medication or has allergies reduces the time until proper treatment is given.
One step ahead – The things you do not see are the ones that can determine the outcome
Prepare, prevent, plan for the unexpected, be confident that you are ready to face challenges. In Professional sports you prepare to win, in non-professional sports you prepare to become the best version of yourself. The Team Management is there to facilitate the development of the team and the individual. It provides safety and security. It is there in good times and an in bad times. It builds for the future and develops clubs to accommodate future generations of athletes. Sport creates commitment, emotion and belonging. It is all the invisible hours of effort that are put in, which makes the sport and its values so strong.
Being one step ahead – is crucial if a critical situation should arise. Having made the right preparations, prevented, planned for the unexpected and be confident that one can communicate with health professionals around the world – is essential to the outcome.
World Medical Card has chosen to get involved in sports to raise awareness of the importance of being one step ahead. To reduce the risk of incorrect treatment and incorrect medication, we as individuals also have a responsibility. By having our medical record updated and available, we make the job of a healthcare professional easier. Proper treatment can be given quickly, safely, and securely. It limits the extent of damage, reduces time for convalescence and ultimately saves lives.
Our task is to reduce the risk of incorrect medication, incorrect treatment, and unnecessary loss of lives.
