Brief Summary:
This study evaluated Brain 101: The Concussion Play book, an intervention that provides education and resources on concussion management for high schools. The study hypotheses were that athletes and parents who viewed the Brain 101 program would demonstrate increased knowledge and self efficacy in concussion management, and that use of the intervention would positively affect school concussion management practices.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Brain 101 website
Brain 101: The Concussion Play book is a web-based, stand-alone guide for school leaders on effective policies and practices in concussion management. The website offers a school-wide approach to preventing and managing sports concussion, including a) training for educators, athletics staff, students, and parents; b) guidelines for creating a concussion management team; and c) information on strategies for supporting students in the classroom following concussion.
Other: Brain 101 website
Brain 101: The Concussion Play book is a web-based, stand-alone guide for school leaders on effective policies and practices in concussion management. Consistent with the literature on effective school-based change efforts, the website offers a comprehensive, school-wide approach to preventing and managing sports concussion, including training for educators, athletics staff, students, and parents. The website presents guidelines for creating a concussion management team (CMT) that meets regularly to support students as they return to academics, extra-curricular activities, and athletics. It also includes information on strategies for supporting students in the classroom following concussion (e.g., designing reduced school schedules, monitoring school performance following concussion).

Active Comparator: Control Other: Control
At control schools, parents viewed Centers for Disease Control materials on safe teen drivers. Athletes viewed web-based materials about teens staying safe on the job.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in youth athlete and parent knowledge of effective sports concussion management from before and after intervention exposure [ Time Frame: Pre: Participants completed the measure an average of 30 minutes prior to being exposed to the intervention. Post: Participants completed the measure an average of 30 minutes after exposure to the intervention ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in youth athlete and parent ratings of self-efficacy in sports concussion management [ Time Frame: Pre: Participants completed the measure an average of 30 minutes prior to being exposed to the intervention. Post: Participants completed the measure an average of 30 minutes after exposure to the intervention ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Implementation of effective concussion management guidelines [ Time Frame: 3 months post intervention ]
