Player Welfare at the 2015 Rugby World Cup

Optimising player welfare is seen as a major priority for Rugby Union throughout the world and it will be a key topic at this year’s Sport and Exercise Medicine conference, Hear the Dragon Roar, hosted by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Medicine (BASEM) and the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine UK (FSEM).

Keynote speaker Dr Simon Kemp, Chief Medical Officer at the Rugby Football Union will present the recent advance in welfare provision for players at the 2015 Rugby World Cup and consider the major challenges facing the game. Player welfare is at the heart of all the training the RFU delivers to coaches, referees, and medics at all levels of the game. Dr Kemp’s presentation will highlight the major welfare areas and review the extent to which these are being consistently addressed in the professional, development and age-group game, the successes to date and the key outstanding challenges.

Hear the Dragon Roar will be at the Mercure Cardiff Holland House Hotel on the 12 and 13 November 2015.
