A new study surveys physicians to understand barriers and facilitators to use of the Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT).

The study found that barriers to using the CATT include a lack of time to complete modules and a lack of awareness of the CATT. Facilitators for using the CATT include that it is easy to use, accessible, straightforward, and concise.

Most physicians benefitted from using the CATT: 85% learned new information, 73% changed the way they diagnose, treat, or manage concussion, and 71% would recommend the CATT to colleagues.

These findings will help inform how to better promote the CATT and recommendations to increase awareness of the resource. More broadly, these findings will also help inform how to engage medical professionals in continuing medical education.
