Apr 7, 2014 - Information Alert from WVOTA
Dear occupational therapy practitioners, I am an occupational therapy doctoral student at Tufts University, and I would like to ask for your assistance in conducting research on use of groups in practice. I am investigating occupational therapy practitioners’ current practice and views of group treatment in order to identify supports and benefits of group treatment, to identify future educational needs related to group practice, and to make recommendations to increase group work in occupational therapy practice. I am being guided in this research by Dr. Sharan Schwartzberg, FAOTA, CGP, FAGPA, Professor of Occupational Therapy. Below is a link to the online survey. Your responses will be kept completely confidential. The survey is web-based and your name and/or email address will not be attached to the results in any way. The survey is user-friendly and you should be able to complete it in 20 minutes or less. Take the survey now by following this link: https://tufts.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_7PXHJqRZugljhWd Please feel free to forward this message to occupational therapy practitioners (in and outside your facility), to help gather multiple perspectives on group practice. I appreciate your assistance and look forward to your responses. Both this email and the study have been approved by Tufts University’s Institutional Review Board. If you have any questions, please contact Susan Higgins at susan.higgins@tufts.edu or Sharan Schwartzberg at sharan.schwartzberg@tufts.edu. Thank you for your time and consideration, Susan M. Higgins, MA, OTR/L
