Female Athlete Triad Pre Participation Evaluation

Introduction:

Female athletes at risk for the Triad can be identified via a screening questionnaire. This document outlines the questions that are sensitive for identifying the athlete at risk who requires further investigation. The questions are based on a review of the current scientific literature on identifying athletes with eating disorders / disordered eating, amennorhea and osteopenia/osteoporosis. Other documents reviewed in the compilation of this guide are the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Preparticipation Examination (PPE) as well as the IOC Female Athlete Triad PPE and the ACSM Female Athlete Triad Position Stand.
