Abstract

Clinical Scenario: Patient documentation of injuries is an important component to patient care. It is an athletic trainer’s professional responsibility to keep record of all patient injuries. In the secondary school setting; there are barriers faced by athletic trainers to document efficiently.

Clinical Question: What are the barriers for athletic trainers working in the secondary setting for documentation of injuries?

Summary of Key Findings: After review; three studies were found relevant to answer the clinical question and meet the inclusion criteria. Three concluded that the lack of time to document injuries was a barrier. Two studies reported the lack of resources (EMR; Internet) was a factor. One researcher concluded that the uncertainty of what to document was a factor. One researcher concluded the high patient loads and the multiple stakeholders were a barrier.

Clinical Bottom Line: The evidence showed that the lack of time; the lack of resources; the uncertainty of what to document; high patient load; and multiple stakeholders were reasons why secondary school athletic trainers do not have consistent documentation.

Strength of Recommendation: Grade B
