OTs Out There: Please Help These Students With Their Survey

Back to my blog home page:

It's an overcast morning in northern California, and the flecks of rain are suspended in the air, it seems like....60 degrees. In the midst of the heatwave across the Midwest, I am grateful to be in such a beautiful place. So, before I start work...

OK, guys, we received a letter in our rehab department this week from some students at California State University. I am going to type the text of it because I'd love for you to considering taking their survey. Here goes:

To A Fellow Occupational Therapist,

We are 2nd year occupational therapy students at California State University, Dominguez Hills. We are currently conducting a quantitative research study on spirituality - which has been approved by the IRB - under the supervision of Eric Hwang, PhD, OTR/L and Yan-hua Huang, PhD, OTR/L.

The goal of our study is to see if there is any correlation between an occupational therapist's personal sense of spirituality and how he/she applies/addresses spirituality in his/her practice. If you have a moment, we would like to invite you to participate in our study by taking an online survey.

There are 30 questions that should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. As an additional incentive, not only will you be helping us extend current research on spirituality and the role it plays in OT practice, but you will also be entered into a drawing for a $30 Visa gift card! Just email us at and we will send you the link to our questionnaire.

Also, please feel free to pass this information along to other practicing therapists you know. We greatly appreciate your time and effort in contributing to this important study.

With sincere gratitude,
Melissa Baylor
Maribel Cervantes
Enffie Chen

Thanks, in advance, for helping these students receive a great response!
