Development and Evaluation of Sports Concussion Prevention Strategies
This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) acknowledges that we need to build a culture in sports where athletes, parents, coaches, sports officials, and athletic trainers take steps to reduce the likelihood that athletes experience concussions and encourage athletes to recognize and report concussion symptoms so that athletes can obtain appropriate care and take sufficient time to recover (National Academy of Sciences (NAS) study, 2014). The purpose of this research is to develop and pilot test a new intervention, or rigorously evaluate an existing intervention, that aims to advance primary or secondary prevention of concussion among young athletes participating in youth sports programs.
