Injuries sustained in sport and physical activities are not a new topic and notwithstanding the current media spotlight we still know very little about the true rate of injuries or effective strategies to reduce the risk of injury. A benefit of the recent attention is a growing momentum to engage a wider group of stakeholders in the discussions about the impact of such injuries. Part of this discussion has identified a growing gap in research and through surveys such as this one researchers, community stakeholders and decision makers will gain a better understanding of the injury issue in sport and physical activity in Ontario. This survey is an initial step within the larger Play Safe Initiative strategy to understand injury in sport and physical activity through collaboration, research and knowledge exchange. Responses will be kept confidential and will only be reported in aggregate. This survey and research protocol has been reviewed by the Ethics Review Board of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and LakeheadUniversity. For questions about this survey please contact Dr. Susan L. Forbes (firstname.lastname@example.org).
