dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this project was to survey student athletes, athletic trainers, and coaches in the Missouri Valley Conference to determine their respective understanding of concussions, to assess how athletic trainers and coaches make determinations about returning to competition of the athletes who have suffered from concussion, to compare student athletes and professionals who work with student athletes in terms of concussion-related attitudes and opinion, and to identify any tools used to assess concussion and to make recommendations about returning to play. We anticipate that there may be some variability among sports (e.g., low impact vs. high impact sports), and between players, coaches and trainers. Our findings from the survey should lead to better understanding of perceptions about concussions and future educational information that might be needed for players, coaches and trainers.en_US
