The purpose of this study is to examine the cost of providing on-site athletic training treatments for a performing arts show, versus the cost that would be incurred for off-site treatments. As a profession, athletic training is growing quickly and entering a wide expanse of new settings. The physical nature of work, profit driven mindset of organizations and non-traditional occupational settings all contribute to the need for cost benefit analysis research regarding on-site athletic training. Using a cost avoidance formula, this research will examine if there is a difference in the direct cost of treating employees through an on-site athletic training program compared to the cost of sending employees off-site for the treatment. Using data from injuries that occurred on-site at a professional performing arts show the on-site cost was compared to estimated cost of sending same injuries off-site for treatment. Results from the current study suggest having on-site athletic trainers' treating work injuries on-site will be cheaper then sending those injuries off-site.
