In the secondary school setting, how can athletic trainers best assess the comprehensiveness of the athletic training services provided and improve or increase the athletic health care accessible to the patient?

  • Organizations caring for patients that are secondary school aged will assess their current athletic health care program to ensure improved patient centered care.
  • Organizations caring for patients that are secondary school aged will identify gaps in services provided by their current athletic health care program.
  • Organizations caring for secondary school aged patients will utilize the NATA PASS program to facilitate necessary change in the organizations’ AHCP (Athletic Health Care Program) which will improve patient care.
  • Attendees will distinguish the 12 standards and sub-standards identified in this process.
  • Attendees will analyze and apply the potential uses of the tool in evaluation of their organizations current status.
  • Attendees will evaluate their organization and recommend changes to the medical care they provide to secondary school aged athletes.
