Abstract

Athletic trainers’ are required to provide the best possible care to patients, including injury prevention which is designed and implemented to prevent or reduce the severity of bodily injuries that are caused by external mechanisms before they occur. Therefore, the purpose of this research study was to examine athletic trainers’ utilization of injury prevention programs within the National Athletic Trainers’ Association District III (NATA D3). An email-based 11 question questionnaire was randomly sent to athletic trainers within the NATA D3 (Virginia, North Carolina, West Virginia, Maryland, South Carolina, and the District of Columbia). Descriptive statistics were calculated for responses and multiple regression was used to determine if utilization of IPPs (dependent variable) differed based on sex, age, setting, and experience (independent variables). The combination of age, sex, setting, and number of years at their current job were unable to predict if they used an IPP or not (R2
