President’s Note
Over the years, it has been through the hard work and passion
of many CASEM members that Sport and Exercise Medicine has
evolved as an exciting and growing area of medicine. In this first
newsletter of 2013 I would like to highlight some recent accomplishments and achievements of a few of our outstanding
CASEM members.
Congratulations to Dr Bob Brock who was selected the
CASEM Sport Medicine Community Physician of the Year for
2012. The official announcement in the previous newsletter outlines his long list of accomplishments and as you can see, he has
been around for a long time! What continues to impress me is
his ongoing commitment to and involvement in the organization.
After more than 25 years, he still has the energy and enthusiasm
to sit on the credentials committee.

Dr. Renata Frankovich
CASEM President 2012-2013
On the major games scene, I would like to congratulate Dr Connie Lebrun for being selected Chief Doctor for the Sochi 2014 Olympics Winter Games. There are very few people
who have as much experience at major games as Connie and with that experience and her
dedication, the team will be in good hands. Also Dr Navin Prasad has been selected as CMO
for the Commonwealth Games in 2014 in Glasgow. Navin obviously did a great job under
challenging conditions in the previous games in Delhi and as a result was chosen once again
to lead the medical team. On home turf, Dr Julia Alleyne, CMO for the up coming Toronto
2015 Pan American Games has been working diligently on preparations for this major event.
With Julia’s organizational skills and energy, the Pan Am nations will be sure to get exemplary
medical care.
I would like to thank Dr Winne Meeuwisse for leading the Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine
from 1998 to 2012 as Editor-in-Chief. Under Winne’s leadership, the CJSM has become an
important asset enhancing the academic and research credibility of sport medicine in Canada.

Finally Dr Merrilee Zetaruk and Dr Lisa Fischer must be commended for their hardwork,
Executive Director:
persistence, diligence and commitment to the goal of achieving speciality recognition. Much
Dawn Haworth,
of the work done by Merrilee and Lisa is behind the scenes or with the Royal College or the [email protected]
College of Family Physicians. I am optimistic that in the future our day to day clinical practice will benefit from speciality recognition by the colleges.
Communications Officer
Your opportunity to meet and mingle with your CASEM colleagues is coming up in April in
Whistler, so do remember to register for the Annual Symposium. The program looks very
exciting and I look forward to seeing you all there.

Au fil des années, c’est grâce au travail archarné et à la passion des membres nombreux de
l’ACMSE que la médecine du sport et de l'exercice a évolué comme un domaine passionnant
et en pleine croissance dans la médecine. Dans ce premier bulletin de l'année 2013, je tiens
à souligner quelques réalisations et accomplissements récents de quelques-uns de nos membres ACMSE.

Premièrement, félicitations à Dr Bob Brock, qui a été choisi comme ‘médecin de communauté en médecine du
sport 2012 ‘. L'annonce officielle dans le bulletin précédent expose sa longue liste de réalisations. Comme vous
pouvez le réaliser, Dr Brock fait parti de la médecine du sport depuis longtemps! Ce qui continue à m'impressionner, c'est son engagement et sa participation à l'organisation de l’ACMSE. Après plus de 25 ans, il a toujours
l'énergie et l'enthousiasme de siéger au comité d’accréditation.
Sur la scène des jeux majeurs, je tiens à féliciter Dr Connie Lebrun pour avoir été sélectionnée comme médecin
en chef des Jeux olympiques d'hiver de 2014 à Sotchi. Il y a très peu de gens qui ont autant d’expérience que
Connie Lebrun dans les jeux majeurs. Son expérience et son dévouement mettra l'équipe en bonnes mains. Dr
Navin Prasad a été sélectionné également comme l'OCM pour les Jeux du Commonwealth en 2014 à Glasgow.
Navin évidemment a fait un excellent travail dans des conditions difficiles aux jeux précédents à Delhi et par
conséquence a été pour une fois de plus choisi à diriger l'équipe médicale. Ici au Canada, Dr Julia Alleyne, directrice du marketing pour les Jeux Pan Am à Toronto en 2015, a travaillé avec diligence sur les préparatifs de cet événement majeur. Avec les compétences organisationnelles et l’énergie que Julia possède, nous sommes persuadés
que les pays panaméricains vont obtenir des soins médicaux exemplaires.
Je tiens à remercier Dr Winne Meeuwisse pour la direction qu’il a donné au Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine de
1998 à 2012 en tant que rédacteur en chef. Le CSJM est devenu un atout sous la direction de Winne, et à accru sa
crédibilité académique et en recherche de médecine du sport au Canada.
Enfin, il faut féliciter Dr Merrilee Zetaruk et Dr Lisa Fischer pour leur travail acharné, leur persévérance, et leur
diligence dans l’engagement à la reconnaissance de spécialité de la médecine du sport. Une grande partie du travail
effectué par Merrilee et Lisa est fait derrière les coulisses avec le Collège royal ou le Collège des médecins de famille. J'ai beaucoup d’espoir que dans le futur la pratique clinique de tous les jours bénéficiera de la reconnaissance de spécialité par les collèges.
Ne manquez pas votre chance de rencontrer vos collègues ACMSE en avril à Whistler ! N’oubliez pas de vous
inscrire au Symposium scientifique annuel de l’ACMSE. Le programme s'annonce très excitant et j'ai hâte de vous
voir tous là.
Regards / Amitiés,
Renata Frankovich

MEDICINE ON THE WESTERN
EDGE 2013
Hello Everyone!
The 2013 Annual Symposium coming up in Whistler is shaping up to be
a memorable one. Speakers will be coming from all corners of the
continent and overseas to talk to you about Issues in Sports Medicine
that will help you clinically in the office, with team care, out in the wilderness and on the ski hill. We have amalgamated many aspects of
Sport Medicine into the program and put just a small ‘Western Edge’
to them.
Our Opening Keynote will be from Rick Hansen, who is just coming off
of the 25th Anniversary of his historic Relay, and we will have a Closing
Keynote from Beckie Scott, who will be talking about Doping and the
Empty Podium. Dr. Jack Taunton will be giving the Honoured Lance
Richard lecture on Mentorship in Sports Medicine. Sandwiched between these inspiring talks will be others as well as loads of current
information, interactive workshops and social fun.
Registration numbers are far exceeding expectations, so be sure to
sign up soon and reserve your lodging. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone in Whistler in April!!
Your Whistler 2013 Organizing Committee

Athletes with a Disability
Having been involved with the Paralympic movement since the Commonwealth Games in 2006, I have added
a new item to my role as a physician. This is not exclusive to my interest in sports medicine but as a medical
practitioner. As I have mentioned in an interview in a recent Medical Post, physicians are in a prime position
to alter the lives of many individuals with congenital or acquired disabilities. Pediatricians may see the future
athletes as neonates and many of us will see patients who are struck with conditions requiring amputations
or involved in vehicular accidents causing damages that are irreparable.
I don’t have the benefit of recent statistics but the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) still quotes 2001
numbers stating only 3% of Canadians with a disability are active in sports. We can change that.
Here is a funny story. I was working in ER and seeing a 12 year old lad who was concussed during a hockey
game. The usual history and evaluation takes place and I proceeded to discuss the issues of concussions as all
of us do on a frequent basis. Although I know I will get blasted by many of you for this following statement, I
have to state that during my evaluation of a concussed patient, especially one who is fully recovered when
they present in ER, I do not routinely test the ankle reflexes at the Achilles. I often mention that a hit to the
head (skull) is mechanically similar to a hit to the tibia: it hurts as the bone is hit without much protective
covering. This is different from the concussion mechanism involving some form of inertial shift of the brain
from an impact that may not be directly to the head. As I go through my explanation of the skull impact I often demonstrate by tapping on the patient’s shin….. to the parents’ and the patient’s amusement, I hit his
prosthetic leg which was covered by his sweat
pants! They said “That won’t hurt him much,
it’s fake!”. I guess you had to be there, but it
was a very funny moment. Congenital amniotic
banding also caused some deformities to one of
his hands. We had a great chat about how active he was and not planning on slowing down.
We discussed all the sports where he could get
involved not only on the recreational level but
the international scene. As most parents are,
they were completely unaware of the existence
of the CPC and other organizations helping
these future athletes progress and participate.
Added to the usual offering of the Thinkfirst
website for patients to get more information
after their concussion, I included the CPC website for them to get more involved.
Never miss an opportunity to get patients involved in sports, especially when you find the occasional prosthetic leg during your exams.

“Practice what you preach”.
How many times have we heard that one! We are long past the Camel adds with the doctor stating his preference of cigarettes. The difficulty is trying to express to our patients involved in ultra-marathons and double
-ironman distances that “we know what they are going through”. I do not attempt to engage in such events
as I truly don’t have enough time on my hands (or talent…..) but I do preach the passion of cycling in wine
country.
Darlene and I teamed up with friends to cycle in Sonoma Valley in the fall. Great riding. Thigh blasting grades
of Pine Flat hill climb (see a YouTube video of Contador and Leipheimer training there before the Tour of
California). During the long climb, I never figured out why it was called Pine FLAT hill. Perfect weather. Stopping for port tasting at 10 in the morning, followed by an eventual maximum threshold 15 km effort after
lunch so we wouldn’t be late for a booked tasting at a great winery. In the evenings, the town of Healdsburg
offers excellent restaurants to cater for the replenishment meals.
Practice what you preach!
Richard and Darlene enjoying a bike and Wine tour!
