dc.description.abstractIt is imperative for Athletic Trainers to possess the knowledge and skills necessary to assure their patients the highest quality health care. Evidence suggests that asthma prevalence in the athletic population ranges between 15-20% of all athletes. The objective of this investigation was to determine the knowledge of Athletic Trainers who recently graduated (within 1 year) from a Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) accredited undergraduate athletic training education program (CAUATEP), as determined by the most recent educational standards, on asthma specific competencies. This study was qualitative in nature. Subjects of this study included 1,000 randomly selected Athletic Trainers within their first year of graduation from a CAUATEP. Subjects were selected randomly by the NATA research survey services in accordance with the specific research inclusion and exclusion criteria. Data were collected through SurveyMonkey and analyzed using SPSS (version 16.0; SPSS Inc, Chicago, IL) and Microsoft Excel (Microsoft Inc. Redmond, WA). This study found that no participants passed the asthma competencies survey with a 70% or higher, the average score was a 34% ± 10.53. A majority of Athletic Trainers surveyed (83%) believe that there is a need for more asthma specific education in CAUATEPs. It is the conclusion of this study that graduates of CAATE accredited undergraduate athletic training education programs do not possess the necessary education competency to adequately recognize and treat asthma related medical conditions.
