VNATA 2020 Educational Program

VNATA 2020 brings the best athletic training educational programming from thought leaders around the world to deliver a focused and practical learning experience that will enhance the way athletic trainers, athletic therapists, sport rehabilitators and other similar health care providers care for patients.

While there will be a wide variety of content presented, the NATA Convention Program Committee has identified four key themes for VNATA 2020.

Training Load

This theme is focused on the tools and strategies available to monitor the effort of athletes and the physically active as well as how athletic trainers can use this information to mitigate injury risk.

Biometrics/Analytics

This theme is focused on tools available to capture large biological datasets from their patients and how athletic trainers can use these datasets to inform clinical decision-making.

Motor Learning/ Motor Behavior

This theme is focused on disseminating state-of-the-art techniques and rehabilitative strategies to enhance motor control through neuroplasticity.

Heat

This theme is focused on disseminating information related to overcoming barriers to deliver best practices in recognizing and treating heat-related illness in the physically active.

Earning CEUs

Your attendance in sessions is tracked. You can validate the time spent in each event you have attended by clicking on “Help Center”, “Privacy Center”, and then “Profile Usage.” This will show confirmation of time spent in educational sessions. In order to earn CEUs, you will need to watch each session in its entirety and complete the assessment.

Assessments and Statements of Credit

If you watch a session in its entirety and complete the assessment, you should receive the following message when you hit “Save Answers”:

Thank you for participating in this VNATA session. You have viewed the session in its entirety and completed the assessment. This session will be available to claim CEUs.

If you have not watched the session in its entirety and completed the assessment, you should receive the following message:

You have not completed viewing this session. Please view the session in its entirety, then complete the assessment in order to earn CEUs.

Assessments may be found in the Help Center. There is also a blue button link to “Assessments” within each session. If you are still in any doubt as to whether you have completed a particular session, you may retake the assessment for that session and you will see one of the italicized messages above, which will confirm that you have or have not completed the requirements. You may also choose to print your confirmation for your records.

If you have viewed a session in its entirety and completed the assessment, the session will be counted as part of your CEU tally. Up to 25 CEUs may be earned up until the time the VNATA 2020 platform closes at 11:59 p.m. CDT Sept.10.
