Sport and Exercise Medicine OSCEs Book Review:

As the only text on the market for Sport and Exercise Medicine objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs), this is an invaluable guide for those studying sport and exercise medicine and sitting examinations. Whilst specifically targeted at the OSCE, this book will have much wider appeal throughout the clinical setting. Sport and Exercise Medicine is a new and developing specialty and there has been a rapid increase in the number of universities offering MSc degrees in Sport and Exercise Medicine and more candidates year on the year sitting the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (FSEM) diploma exam. It is a niche specialty, with very little content taught at an undergraduate level, therefore knowing the material that is examined is often challenging compared with other specialties. This book provides the content to fill that need. The book is divided into sections based on the main topics that arise in sport and exercise medicine OSCEs, with both core knowledge and practical tips to ensure a fluid and confident performance by the examinee in every station. A wide range of readers will benefit from this book, including those about to sit a postgraduate examination in sport and exercise medicine or those enrolled in a postgraduate certificate or master’s course in the specialty. It will also be useful to doctors and allied healthcare professionals, such as physiotherapists, sports therapists, podiatrists and nurses, as well as undergraduate students. Further, the young clinician who is just starting out and wants to build their confidence in musculoskeletal assessment and presenting to seniors will gain much from reading this book.

Communities in Action Book Review:

In the United States, some populations suffer from far greater disparities in health than others. Those disparities are caused not only by fundamental differences in health status across segments of the population, but also because of inequities in factors that impact health status, so-called determinants of health. Only part of an individual's health status depends on his or her behavior and choice; community-wide problems like poverty, unemployment, poor education, inadequate housing, poor public transportation, interpersonal violence, and decaying neighborhoods also contribute to health inequities, as well as the historic and ongoing interplay of structures, policies, and norms that shape lives. When these factors are not optimal in a community, it does not mean they are intractable: such inequities can be mitigated by social policies that can shape health in powerful ways. Communities in Action: Pathways to Health Equity seeks to delineate the causes of and the solutions to health inequities in the United States. This report focuses on what communities can do to promote health equity, what actions are needed by the many and varied stakeholders that are part of communities or support them, as well as the root causes and structural barriers that need to be overcome.
