The average percentage of correct answers of the pre test questionnaires was 64%. The average percentage of correct answers of the post test questionnaires was 80%.
This quality improvement project aimed to assess and improve resident education in concussion identification and management. Methods used included an online Blackboard module incorporated into resident education curriculum along with a standardized concussion encounter form that was developed for resident use in the ambulatory clinics. Assessment of resident knowledge was done using a pre/post test questionnaire format. Residents averaged 64% correct in the pre-test and 80% correct in the post test. Educating residents in concussion identification and management with an online module and lecture series improved resident knowledge of concussions.
