Investigation of the Rosenbaum Concussion Knowledge and Attitudes Survey in Collegiate Athletes: A Dissertation of Clinical Practice Improvement
Thesis (D.A.T., Movement & Leisure Sciences) -- University of Idaho, 2016 | The capstone project of the Doctor of Athletic Training program is a Dissertation of Clinical Practice Improvement (DoCPI). The DoCPI demonstrates my athletic training growth toward an advanced practitioner in my area of focus. Included in this project is my Narrative, which analyses my DAT journey toward advanced practice. Reflective practice is used throughout my DoCPI to demonstrate my clinical residency growth and clinical-reasoning improvement. My clinical practice growth is highlighted through my understanding of action research and evidence-based practice through patient outcomes, analysis of data, and dissemination of findings through scholarship. Evidence to support my growth toward advanced practice in the assessment and treatment of breathing pattern disorders is demonstrated in two manuscripts titled, “A Clinical Guide to Recognizing Breathing Disorders in the Physically Active: Part 1” and “Breathing Pattern Disorder and Interventions: Part 2.” Lastly, a manuscript titled, “Investigation of the Rosenbaum Concussion Knowledge and Attitudes Survey in Collegiate Athletes” demonstrates an advanced a priori statistical analysis design to assess the validity and reliability of this outcome measure in a collegiate population.
