Requiring Athletes to Acknowledge Receipt of Concussion‐Related Information and Responsibility to Report Symptoms: A Study of the Prevalence, Variation, and Possible Improvements

Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 42 (3):297-313 (2014)

Abstract
State concussion laws and sport-league policies are important tools for protecting public health, but also present implementation challenges. Both state laws and league policies often require athletes provide written acknowledgement of having received concussion-related information and/or of their responsibility to report concussion-related symptoms. This paper examines these requirements in two ways: an analysis of the variation in state laws and sport-league policies and a study of their effects in a cohort of collegiate football players.
