Dear Participant,

We are graduate students at Jefferson College of Health Sciences in the Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy Program. For our thesis, we are examining the comfort levels of occupational therapy practitioners when treating clients identifying within the LGBTQIA community, along with determining if a client’s sexual orientation or gender identity has any impact on the occupational therapy evaluation or intervention processes.

A 24-item survey is open to any occupational therapy practitioner that meets the inclusion criteria. This survey is voluntary, anonymous, and confidential. Please only take the survey once. This survey expires on March 2, 2018.

Inclusion criteria:

  • Licensed occupational therapist or occupational therapy assistant

  • Currently working in a clinical setting

  • Practicing within the United States or its territories

Exclusion criteria:

  • Retired OT/OTA practitioners

  • OT/OTA practitioners working in a research setting or academia

If you are interested in completing this brief 5-10 minute survey, go to this link:
