Dear Montana Occupational Therapy Association,

 

We are writing to ask for your help sharing our survey with your members. The online survey examines OT and COTA practices with adults and children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes to complete. There's an additional link at the end of the survey to enter a drawing to win several $50 Amazon gift cards.

 

By establishing a profile of current practices, the survey allows for international comparisons; enables monitoring practice trends; and informs occupational therapy educators. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Alisha Ohl anytime: aohl@clarkson.edu or 607-342-2003.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Dear Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants,  

You are invited to participate in a research study about the reported burnout among occupational therapy practitioners working a minimum of 35 hours weekly in a clinical or academic occupational therapy setting. According to the literature, there is a discrepancy between some publications that state that occupational therapy is among the top professions for a variety of reasons and other literature stating that occupational therapy practitioners experience burnout. This research may be used to promote the occupational therapy field or to raise awareness of possible burnout among occupational therapy practitioners. All responses are confidential and anonymous.   

The study is being conducted by occupational therapy doctoral students as part of a research requirement from Creighton University.   

To participate in the brief (10-15 minute) online survey, occupational therapy practitioners must:  

  • Currently work a minimum of 35 hours weekly in a clinical or academic occupational therapy setting  

  • Be a registered and licensed occupational therapist or a certified and licensed occupational therapy assistant  

Follow this link to participate today: https://blueq.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9Fg0Jt7NODiaJNj 

Participants are allowed to discontinue taking the survey at any time with no consequences.  

Thank you for your time and contribution to the promotion and development of occupational therapy! Please feel free to share with others via snowball sampling.

Hello Colleagues, 

I am conducting an interview in order to gain an in-depth understanding of occupational therapy practitioners’ perceptions and practice of addressing social isolation risk factors among community-dwelling older adults in skilled nursing facilities prior to discharge.

This study is looking for occupational therapy practitioners who work at least twenty hours per week in a skilled nursing facility.

This study is completely voluntary, confidential, and no form of compensation is provided. The interview will take approximately 1 hour to complete and may be in-person, on the phone, or through online communication platforms such as Skype or Facetime.

This project has been approved by Quinnipiac University’s Institutional Review Board. If you have questions or would like further information, please contact the co-investigator, Allissa Smith, who can be contacted via email at Allissa.smith@quinnipiac.edu. Thank you

Receiving such support from interactive state associations is absolutely wonderful. Thank you for your assistance!

Dear Occupational Therapist,
 
We are conducting a survey entitled: Exploring the Impact of Work Demands on School-based Occupational Therapy Practice to gather information about the work demands of school-based occupational therapists. Based on your expertise, we are requesting that you participate in as well as pass along this survey to other qualified colleagues. Your participation will provide a greater understanding of the current work duties and responsibilities of school-based occupational therapists and their effect on school-based occupational therapy services.
 
The survey should only take about 10-15 minutes to complete. Most response options are limited to multiple choice, checkboxes, and rating scales. We will ask information regarding your demographics; current work duties and responsibilities; facilitators and barriers to managing your work; and the impact of your responsibilities on service provision, job satisfaction, and retention.    
 
Your participation is voluntary and can be withdrawn at any time. No personally identifiable information, including IP addresses, will be associated with your responses. The Chicago State University Institutional Review Board has approved this survey (CSU IRB#013-04-17). If you have any questions about this study, please feel free to contact our research faculty advisor, Dr. Regina Smith, at (773) 995-2366 or rsmith31@csu.edu.
 
Clicking on the “Submit” button at the end of the survey will be considered consent. Any responses on surveys not officially submitted by clicking the “Submit” button WILL NOT be included in the results. Dissemination of results will be conducted only for scholarly purposes (e.g., educational/professional presentations, publication in a professional journal/magazine). Neither your name nor any other identifiable information will be used or reported in the dissemination of the results of this study.    
 
Thank you very much for your interest and participation. 
Sincerely,
Ashley Anthony, MOTS
