Recently, the Centers for Disease Control released guidelines for acute concussion management following mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). These guidelines make the following assumptions: 1) that the person has symptoms of MTBI and knows their diagnosis, 2) has the ability to monitor these symptoms, and 3) can implement the guidelines for symptom management. In an initial effort to determine the extent to which Emergency Department nurses are involved in MTBI assessment and discharge teaching, we conducted a preliminary survey of nursing practices. The purpose of this investigation was to describe the assessment and discharge teaching practices of Emergency Department nurses in the Midwest, as specified by the CDC untested guidelines. This study was guided by the Nursing Role Effectiveness Model (NREM). Nurses were also queried about their perception of workplace barriers leading to difficulties in implementing assessment, documentation, and discharge teaching following MTBI. According to procedures and survey methods described by Dillman, we mailed surveys to 500 randomly selected registered nurses who were members of the Emergency Nurses Association. In this poster, we will report on descriptive results of 85 ED nurses who met the eligibility requirements. The following questions will be answered: 1.To what extent do ED nurses assess for clinical indicators and symptoms of MTBI as defined by the CDC? 2.What do ED nurses indicate are the most important indicators and symptoms of MTBI? 3.To what degree do ED nurses perform discharge teachings related to the MTBI and to preventive measures? 4.What are the common system barriers in proper assessment and discharging a person with an MTBI as reported by ED nurses?
