Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


There is an ever-increasing impetus to widely implement evidence-based treatment and/or injury prevention methods. However, navigating the research literature to evaluate the evidence can be difficult, and bridging the gap between the research environment and the real-world implementation context can be challenging. The aim of this study was to develop an evidence-based lower limb injury prevention exercise program for implementation in community Australian football.
