Project Survey Title:
Prevalence of Bullying and Incivility in Occupational Therapy Fieldwork Settings

Project Description :

We invite occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants in this group to take part in a research study being conducted by graduate students of the Occupational Therapy Program at Florida Gulf Coast University. The purpose of this study is to identify the prevalence and effects of bullying and incivility in occupational therapy fieldwork settings. This study is intended to be completed by occupational therapy practitioners and occupational therapy & occupational therapy assistant students.

Participants in this study will complete a 10 minute survey about their exposure to bullying and/or incivility in occupational therapy fieldwork settings. Participants will then have the opportunity to participate in a follow-up semi-structured interview about their experience with bullying and/or incivility in occupational therapy fieldwork settings upon completion of the survey. This interview would occur at a later time at the participant’s convenience. To protect participants from the sensitive subject of this study, OT and OTA students are exempt from the interview and will only complete the anonymous questionnaire.

This study has been approved by the Florida Gulf Coast University’s Institutional Review Board and has been assigned the Protocol number: 2020-23

Project Survey Title:

Integration of Health Management and Maintenance into Occupational Therapy Practice

Project Description :
While other OT literature exists, the terminology “health management” and “health maintenance” is sparsely utilized. Other healthcare professionals, including physicians, physical therapists, dieticians, nurses, therapists, and speech language pathologists, may be unfamiliar with typical OT nomenclature. In order to help other health professionals’ gain and understanding of how the IADL health management and maintenance is integrated into OT practice, it is important to first gain the perceptions of practicing OT practitioners. The purpose of this study is to define the OT specific terminology of “health management” and “health maintenance” from practicing clinicians in the context of the multidisciplinary healthcare team to promote and expand the profession of occupational therapy.

Project Survey Title

Research Study on Neurotechnology

Project Description
The researchers at Thomas Jefferson University request your participation in a 20 to 30-minute survey if you meet these criteria: •Assess and treat individuals with neurological conditions such as: Spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, and other neurological conditions. •Encounter patients where surgery and neurotechnology have been used to treat physical impairments of the upper limb. Neurotechnology means any rehabilitative treatment that uses advanced technology such as electrical stimulation, magnetic stimulation, brain computer interfaces, powered braces, myoelectric braces, etc. Bringing these advances into practice can be beneficial but also challenging. Your opinion is needed to help us understand the facilitators and barriers for these treatments that YOU experience. The results of this survey will be kept confidential. Participation in this survey is voluntary. If you have any questions about the study, please contact, Erica Witoslawski: [email protected] or Namrata Grampurohit: [email protected] would appreciate if you forwarded the survey link to other healthcare professionals in your practice setting who work with individuals with neurological conditions.
