Pretty similar. Some mental health questions for the first time I believe. Seems like some more heart questions.

From the American Academy of Pediatrics (the source of the GHSA form)... "[url=https://www.aappublications.org/news/2019/05/15/ppe051519]Updated monograph offers new guidance on preparticipation physical evaluation[/url]" "[url=https://www.aap.org/en-us/advocacy-and-policy/aap-health-initiatives/Pages/PPE.aspx]Preparticipation Physical Evaluation (PPE)[/url]" "[url=https://www.acsm.org/read-research/books/preparticipation-physical-evaluation-monograph]Preparticipation Physical Evaluation (PPE) Monograph, 5th Edition[/url]" [i]Other highlights of the 5th Edition include: - Mental health, an underrecognized problem for athletes. - New guidance on the care of transgender athletes. The history form has been updated with separate entries for athletes to state their sex at birth and to declare gender. Eligibility for high school transgender athletes is set by the state high school associations. - The female athlete triad of energy availability, menstrual health and bone mineral density. Male athletes also can experience a form of the energy deficit in common with the female athlete triad, Dr. Roberts said. - New musculoskeletal tests for risk of patellofemoral and anterior cruciate ligament injuries. - The importance of exercise for children with special needs[/i]

Covers a lot of really sensitive (and some highly political) areas. But the truth is that you need data (hopefully good,preferably lots) to even have the possibility of good policy and gathering that data can sometimes make people uncomfortable. The alternative is not gathering the data and making decisions based on bad, incomplete, or even worse anecdotal evidence. Good to see they are covering some very important areas that need greater clarification and scoping.
