This study—a collaboration between researchers at CDC’s Injury Center, and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia—examined the impact of a 2-part primary care–based intervention. The intervention consisted of: (1) developing a clinical decision support tool referred to as the Concussion SmartSet, or “SmartSet,” available within the electronic health record, and (2) clinician training on current best practices in concussion diagnosis/management and utilizing the SmartSet. Results of the study show that using an electronic clinical decision tool—coupled with in-person training—may be the key to changing primary care provider behavior around concussion care.
