“Occupational therapy practitioners' perspectives on providing services to patients diagnosed with COVID-19”. My research committee and I are looking to have OT practitioners participate in our study. 


Completing the online survey may take 5-10 minutes only. The survey is anonymous, and responses cannot be linked to you. If you are interested in participating, please click the following link.
