Barriers and facilitators to the adoption and implementation of evidence-based injury prevention training programmes: A narrative review

Minnig, MC, et al.; BMJ Open Sport & Exercise Medicine

This narrative review sought to describe the commonly reported barriers and facilitators of the implementation of injury prevention training programs among athletes in organized sport, and to identify necessary steps to promote the uptake and sustainable use of these programs in non-elite athletic communities. 24 publications were identified that discussed implementing evidence-based injury prevention training programs. Frequently reported barriers to implementation include the perceived time and financial cost of the program, coaches lacking confidence in their ability to implement it, and the program including exercises that were difficult or confusing to follow. Frequently reported facilitators to implementation include the coach being aware of program efficacy, shared motivation to complete the program from both coaches and athletes, and the ability to easily integrate the program into practice schedules. To increase the uptake of injury prevention programs, programs should be: 1) of no financial burden to the user, 2) simply adaptable to different sports and individual athletes, and 3) available for use in easily accessible forms, such as in a mobile smartphone application.
