At the beginning of the 2000’s, the IOC Medical and Scientific Commission initiated work on consensus positions or “consensus statements”. By bringing together a large panel of experts on a targeted issue, an exhaustive review of the literature is proposed and practical and concrete recommendations are issued on the basis of this state of scientific knowledge. These “consensus statements” constitute the most up-to-date and currently validated level of knowledge on the targeted issue. However, like the majority of scientific and clinical resources, these documents are relayed in English, which limits their distribution to a wide French-speaking audience.

The objective of ReFORM is to fill in this gap by providing high-level theoretical and practical knowledge on injury prevention to a wide audience of French-speaking stakeholders, through full translations of consensus statements, summaries of key messages and detailed infographies.

These supports are published alternately every 2-3 months in Journal de Traumatologie du Sport (JTS) and Science & Sport (S&S). A first editorial, co-published in both journals, presents this project in more detail.
