Rural Vs Metro Hospitals

Our study is exploring Occupational Therapists’ perspectives on the barriers and enablers to providing stroke rehabilitation in rural and metropolitan contexts, within Western Australia.

We are recruiting Occupational Therapists who are currently working or have previously worked in stroke rehabilitation for a minimum of 6 months within Western Australia (in acute or subacute settings) within rural or metropolitan hospitals.

Survey can be accessed through this link https://curtin.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/preview/SV_cPcSgv1JEQM8BaR?Q_CHL=preview&Q_SurveyVersionID=current Or through the QR code on the flyer. Open the camera app on your phone and place it over the QR code to access survey.

There is the option to participate in a phone or online interview following completion of the survey. This will help us to gather further information about Occupational Therapists’ perspectives and experiences working in stroke rehabilitation.

Our study has received ethical approval from the Ethics Committee at Curtin University. Ethical approval number: HRE2021-0129
