Opportunities for OT Practitioners to Participate in Student Research!

Occupational therapists and Assistants, who do not provide fieldwork education, you are invited to participate in a research study and register for a drawing to receive 1 of 2 amazon $25 gift cards. The survey will remain anonymous regardless if you complete the drawing registration or not.  Please share the link with other OT and OTAs. The goal of this survey is to understand the barriers individual occupational therapists (OT) and occupational therapy assistants (OTA) face which prevent them from providing fieldwork education. 
 The survey typically takes less than 10 minutes to complete and can be started and stopped throughout the completion process. The survey is completed on a voluntary basis and is completely anonymous. Due to the anonymity there is no perceived risk related to participation in the study.  This research has been approved by Eastern Kentucky University Internal Review Board.  Click the link below to read the full disclosure and begin the survey.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact: jacqueline_schafe4@mymail.eku.edu
