Abstract

The purpose of this study is to describe the relationship between task-efficacy, coping-efficacy and rehab-adherence. The secondary aim is to determine if an athlete’s role within their team also relates to adherence. Thirty student-athletes will be surveyed from Keene State College and Franklin Pierce University. Athletes involved in a rehab program for a musculoskeletal injury, who have missed at least two practices or games, will be included. A 17-question, two-part, online survey will be emailed for participants to complete outside the athletic training room. The main test will compare the total score from both surveys using Pearson’s correlation coefficient, a one-tail test and a p-value ≤ 0.05. Additionally, I’ll compare the number of games started with the score from the adherence measure using Pearson’s r. I hypothesize self-efficacy will be strongly associated with rehabilitation adherence. Furthermore, the number of games started will also be strongly associated with rehab adherence.
