Trust is a crucial element for a successful patient-clinician relationship. Athletic trainers may care for musical performing artists who demonstrate unique needs compared to traditional patients. In order to provide the best care, athletic trainers must establish a basis of patient-centered care and build solid professional relationships with performers. By improving overall patient-clinician relationship factors with respect to this population, trust may be implemented and sustained. The purpose of the study was to determine factors that established or diminished trust between drum corps members and their athletic trainers. The study included 12 semi-structured interviews in which Drum Corps International (DCI) members defined and analyzed the perception of trust held within this population in relation to athletic trainer interaction. Trustworthiness techniques of member checks, triangulation, external auditing, connoisseurship, and negative case analyses were used. The qualitative methods determined perception of trust through emergent themes and the effect of trust on the patient-clinician relationship. The study further identified factors that maintained or inhibited the aspect of trust between performer and athletic trainer. Accessibility, clinical competence, dependability, comfort, and having a plan of action were found to be the most prominent themes and promote success within this relationship. Overall, trust plays a role in determining patient rapport, compliance, and timely return-to-play through the patient-clinician relationship in the performing arts setting.
