MEDICAL NEEDS AT ATHLETIC EVENTS RANGE FROM MUNDANE TO CRITICAL CARE, REQUIRING CAREFUL PLANNING AND PRECISE EXECUTION.
On behalf of the Toronto Marathon, I'd like to extend our thanks and gratitude to you and your staff for the work that you've done to improve our overall safety and emergency response plan. It was a pleasure working with you and given the short timetalbe that we gave you in which to formalize a workin medical plan that met our criteria and budget, you achieved an excellent final result... It's often better to have someone from the outside looking in to provide a fresh approach with new ideas. Constructive criticism is a good thing and we appreciate and respect your observations and advice.
Race Director, Toronto Marathon
Given the incredible growth in participation of our sport, and the inexperience of some of our participants, the single most important aspect requiring professional assistance is in the area of medical coverage. Sports Medicine Consultants brings years of experience and trained medical professionals to your event. They will assess your medical needs, develop a plan, help recruit the necessary personnel, bring medical supplies and equipment. SMC makes sure that all of your participants are safe – allowing you to focus on your race.
Prior to working with Chris Troyanos and Sports Medicine Consultants, I had no way of evaluating the preparedness of my medical partner. I lacked the expertise to assess whether they were adequately staffed, whether they were following best-practices, and whether they had the correct types and quantities of equipment and materials needed... Chris worked as an experienced third party medical consultant... He worked collaborative with my medical partner through all facets of the planning process to make sure we were doing everything possible to keep our participants safe.
