Research Project at Drake University

I am an OTD student at Drake University in Des Moines, IA. I am currently involved in a research project that is looking at the integration of advocacy within occupational therapy curricula. The goal of this study is to assess potential gaps within occupational therapy program curricula, and to discover ways to increase advocacy efforts of graduate students and future through interview. Advocacy is an integral part of the profession and needs to be emphasized and understood at the graduate level so when students enter the professional field, they can speak about important ideas and opinions that can not only help people understand the importance of occupational therapy but also further advance the profession forward. Below is a questionnaire that will help identify your experiences with advocacy through experiential learning and program curricula.
For the purposes of our research, we are specifically looking for practicing OT's and current OT Masters and Doctoral students within the United States.

Research Study at Midwestern University

Hello Fellow OT Practitioners!  

We are doing a research study on OT practitioner's experiences with educating caregivers of stroke survivors. If you are an OT who has at least one year of experience working with stroke patients and their caregivers in inpatient rehabilitation, we would greatly appreciate it if you would take our survey by August 23rd. The link to the survey is below. The survey should only take 5 minutes. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration!

Much appreciated, 

Elinor Pastore and Daniel Ryan
