The AMSSM now has a process to review research surveys that an individual would like to have sent out to the AMSSM membership. Any survey posed to the AMSSM membership should be directly linked to the mission of AMSSM, which is "to advance the discipline of sports medicine through education, research, advocacy and excellence in patient care." Survey material must be relevant to primary care sports medicine physicians, and ideally are generalizable to the majority of the membership. Survey results are encouraged to be submitted for an AMSSM meeting presentation but acceptance for presentation is not guaranteed. Members of the research committee will review the survey and relay their decision. If approved, the survey will be emailed out to the AMSSM membership twice to try to get as many members as possible to respond to the survey. You must be an AMSSM member to submit a survey to the membership. Please log in to view the link and instructions for requesting distribution of a survey.
We suggest submitting your survey before obtaining IRB approval, as the research committee can help create a better survey and/or notify the individual if it does not meet the needs of the AMSSM. If the research committee approves the submission, the individual will need to obtain IRB approval prior to submitting the survey to the AMSSM membership. Finally, we strongly suggest that you answer the questions below first within a word document, then copy/paste into the fields below. This will prevent you from losing your work in the case of the website timing out.
