The purpose of this study was to evaluate the current state of concussion knowledge and attitudes as well as to assess the types of concussion education platforms utilized, if any, among youth ice hockey parents. Concussion knowledge and attitudes were measured via the Rosenbaum Concussion Knowledge and Attitudes Survey (RoCKAS). Scores from the survey represented the Concussion Knowledge Index (CKI) and Concussion Attitudes Index (CAI). To assess the types of concussion education platforms utilized, a Demographic Questionnaire was completed.
The results showed that youth ice hockey parents possessed knowledge regarding concussion as well as possessed safe attitudes. Furthermore, the results showed that all youth ice hockey parents received a form of concussion related education via one or more multiple platforms.
