Abstract:
Social determinants of health refer to the environment surrounding an individual and how it affects quality of life and plays a role in the presence of health disparities. A key factor to eliminate disparities is to increase the number of health care professionals who belong to a minority population (Institute of Medicine, 2003). The National Athletic Trainers' Association reported there were only 221 members who were Native American in 2017. There is also no data showing athletic training programs established on American Indian reservations. This study investigated the barriers and benefits of implementing athletic training programs on Native American reservations from the perspectives of Native American athletic trainers. Results showed implementing athletic training programs would show improvements to the healthcare system, students' lives, and to the community. Barriers of implementing athletic training programs would result from barriers shared with the athletic training profession, barriers from the healthcare system, socioecological, geographic, and socioeconomic barriers related to the reservation. The participants believe athletic training will impact the reservation in a positive manner through improvements made to the reservation health care system, to individual students, and the community. More data needs to be completed to support healthcare innovations for the Native American population.
