Personal and Environmental Characteristics Associated With Burnout in Athletic Trainers: A Critically Appraised Topic

Amy M. Gibson, Gary W. Cohen, Kelly K. Boyce, Megan N. Houston, and Cailee E. Welch Bacon

Clinical Question: What personal and environmental characteristics are associated with burnout in athletic trainers, as measured by the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) and Athletic Training Burnout Inventory (ATBI)? Clinical Bottom Line: There is strong evidence suggesting that personal and environmental factors are associated with burnout in athletic trainers, as measured by the MBI and ATBI. While it is difficult to identify a single contributing factor that increases the athletic trainer’s perception of burnout, athletic trainers should be aware of the characteristics associated with the condition and take appropriate action to reduce the risk of burnout.

Athletic Trainers’ Perceptions of Their Scope of Practice

Cailee E. Welch Bacon, Nydia L. Cabra, Taryn C. Pennington, Lindsey E. Eberman, and Julie M. Cavallario

All athletic trainers (ATs) must meet regulatory standards as outlined in state practice acts. While state practice acts are similar, some variations can lead to misunderstanding or unfamiliarity with appropriate scopes of practice. We aimed to describe ATs’ perceptions regarding athletic training scope of practice. Only 29.7% of respondents correctly identified state government as the agency that defines athletic training scope of practice and 51.7% agreed their respective state practice act limits the skills they can perform. To advocate for the profession, ATs must have a primary understanding of the laws and regulations that promote ATs to work at their fullest ability.

The Ability of Baseline and Normative Neurocognitive Testing to Identify Cognitive Impairments Following Concussion: A Critically Appraised Topic

Nicholas M. Hattrup, Rebekah L. Gardiner, Hannah Gray, Cailee E. Welch Bacon, and Tamara C. Valovich McLeod

Focused Clinical Question: In a high school, college, and professional athletic population, does individualized baseline tests increase the diagnostic accuracy (e.g., sensitivity and specificity) of identifying cognitive impairments when utilizing neurocognitive testing compared to normative data? Clinical Bottom Line: There was insufficient evidence to definitively suggest the use of individualized baseline data over the use of normative data during a postinjury assessment.

Athletic Trainers’ Perceived Challenges Toward Comprehensive Concussion Management in the Secondary School Setting

Cailee E. Welch Bacon, Gary W. Cohen, Melissa C. Kay, Dayna K. Tierney, and Tamara C. Valovich McLeod

Available financial and personnel resources often dictate the specifics of concussion policies and procedures in the secondary school setting. The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore athletic trainers’ perceived challenges toward comprehensive concussion management in the secondary school setting. The findings indicate several challenges exist toward concussion management in the secondary school, including facility, personnel, and community resources, education levels of various stakeholders, and general perceptions of concussion and athletic trainers. It is important to identify challenges athletic trainers may face in order to develop strategies to align current concussion management procedures with current best practices.
