Outcomes and Objectives:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to
(under Certified Athletic Trainer supervision):
1. Apply specific and appropriate taping, wrapping, or prophylactic
devices to prevent injury or re-injury, adhering to principles of
biomechanics and injury mechanism.
2. Fabricate and fit custom protective braces utilizing appropriate
materials to protect specific parts of the body from injury during
athletic activity.
3. Determine the pathology and extent of injury through interview and/or
observation of the athlete.
4. Assess an injury using bilateral comparison, if appropriate.
5. Perform specific injury assessment tests drawing on knowledge of
anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics.
6. Administer first aid using standard, approved techniques, and activate
the emergency plan, if appropriate to provide necessary medical care.
7. Select and employ emergency transportation equipment (e.g.spine boards,
stretchers, and splints) following approved techniques.
8. Design rehabilitation or reconditioning programs for the injured
athlete using standard procedures for therapeutic exercise and modalities
to restore functional status.
9. Select appropriate rehabilitation equipment, manual techniques, and
therapeutic modalities as determined by analysis of a particular injury
and accepted standards of care.
10. Maintain injury care records of an injured athlete that comply with
standard athletic training practices.
11. Comply with safety and sanitation standards as related to facilities
and equipment.
12. Demonstrate the appropriate use of universal precautions to prevent
the transmission of infectious diseases.
13. Apply established plans that include emergency and referral systems
specific to various athletic settings.
14. Demonstrate interpersonal communication skills during interactions
with others (e.g., parents, coaches, colleagues, athletes).
15. Adhere to ethical and legal parameters that define the role of both
the student trainer and Certified Athletic Trainers.
The nature of the training room experience is such that the skills
practiced depend on which sports are in season and the specific
injuries encountered, therefore,the skills mastered change from
semester to semester.  The following are examples of how the outcomes
will vary for the repeating student. All of the competencies covered above
will be improved and mastered with subsequent repeats of the course.
Upon completion of the course the repeating student will be able to:
1.  Explain and demonstrate variations of prophylactic taping, wrapping
and brace construction (i.e. acute, chronic, activity-specific, position-
2.  Apply prophylactic methods to a variety of body parts.
3.  Perform advanced testing methods for assessment of injuries.
4.  Utilize a variety of modalities and techniques for management of
   sports injuries.

in all aspects of student athlete assessment and injury care including but
not limited to:
1.  Assessment of sports injury through observation and interview
2.  Inspection of injured areas using bilateral comparison
3.  Performance of specific tests on an injured area
4.  Administration of first aid
5.  Activation of the emergency plan, if appropriate, to provide necessary
   medical care
6.  Selection and use of emergency equipment for transport of injured
