Preparticipation Physical Evaluation



Preparticipation Physical Evaluation



Adolescent Medicine: State of the Art Reviews 26(1): 18-38



Preparticipation physical evaluations are often a challenge for physicians. A recent study examined the PPE in clinical practice among pediatricians and family physicians in the state of Washington. Unfortunately, many physicians in this study perceived significant barriers to effective performance of the PPE. These barriers included uncertainty about how to perform the PPE, the relative importance of each PPE component, and the lack of a standardized approach and time for appropriate performance of the PPE. Although these concerns are shared by physicians beyond the borders of Washington, those who are aware of the information contained in the PPE monograph are able to use current best practices to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of this examination and report greater comfort and satisfaction with these evaluations.
