Study #3:

My name is Sarah Roberts, and I am a student physical therapist in the Department of Physical Therapy at Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences. I am reaching out to you on behalf of a research study conducted in collaboration with Dr. John Hollman of Mayo Clinic and Dr. Heidi Moyer of Angelo State University.

Our study focuses on assessing the perceived level of preparedness among students and early career Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPTs) and Physical Therapy Assistants (PTAs) in relation to working with the older adult population. As physical therapy programs cover a wide range of topics, we are particularly interested in understanding how experiences with older adults and the management of balance/falls issues are prioritized within the curriculum.

If you are currently in your final year of a physical therapy program or have graduated from a DPT or PTA program within the last 12 months in the United States, we invite you to participate in our survey. Your insights will greatly contribute to our understanding of the preparedness levels of students and early career professionals when it comes to working with older adults.

To access the survey, please follow this Survey link: https://angelo.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b48BvI9OmatF2ei . Your responses will remain completely anonymous and confidential, and the data collected will be used solely for research purposes.

We appreciate your time and willingness to share your experiences and perspectives. Your contribution will help us identify areas for improvement in physical therapy education and ultimately enhance the quality of care provided to older adults.

If you have any questions or require further information about the study, please do not hesitate to contact the primary investigator of this study, Heidi Moyer heidi.moyer@angelo.edu

Summary: The mindfulness survey requires 8-12 minutes for the participant. The survey is part of a study, titled “Mindfulness Perceptions and Utilization in Physical Therapy Practice.” The purpose of the survey is to determine self-perceived competence in personal and professional utilization of mindfulness meditation within physical therapy settings. This survey starts with a few demographic questions but quickly focuses on current mindfulness meditation perceptions, competence, and utilization patterns. Currently licensed and practicing physical therapists and physical therapy students in the United States are eligible to participate in the survey. The reason to include physical therapy students is this study is to capture if and how mindfulness participation and training is being considered at the entry level and whether it should be, to assess any potential differences between practicing therapists and those learning to become physical therapists, and to ensure that the spectrum of those involved in our discipline is captured within the study.

Mindfulness in this survey study is defined as a state with stabilized attention and calmness of mind providing full awareness of the present moment without judgement. The survey suggests mindfulness is trained by meditation, which is the contemplative practice that supports calmness of mind, disciplined focus toward that state of being mindful. The survey uses the term, 'mindfulness meditation.'

Study #8:

To Whom This May Concern,

You have been selected to participate in a survey that will help future research aimed at grip and pinch strength normative data collection. This survey research is part of our Occupational Therapy Doctoral (OTD) Program requirements from Western Michigan University.

This survey will be used to help guide our research by identifying which instruments clinicians (OT/OTA & PT/PTA) prefer to assess hand strength – either hydraulic or electronic meters. Our field desperately needs new normative data given that norms from 1985 are typically used in the clinical environment.

Please let us know if you would be willing to participate in our survey or if you could send it out to your clinical team at your facility. It will take approximately 5 minutes. Upon completion of the survey, participants can enter a drawing to receive a $50 gift card.

Please use the Qualtrics Survey link below to access our survey: https://wmich.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6hcfohMJI0hyo9o

Study #9:

Dear Potential Participant,

You are being invited to participate in a voluntary research study about stress and burnout in physical therapist clinical instructors. Ryan Pontiff is a Texas Woman’s University (TWU) PhD candidate and is conducting the study as a part of his dissertation work. His faculty advisor is Peggy Gleeson.

Link to Online Survey: Stress and Burnout in Physical Therapy Clinical Instructors Survey

The purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence of stress and burnout in physical therapist clinical instructors.

Participation includes a one-time completion of a single online survey with three (3) parts. The first part will be a demographics form to gather information about the participants taking the survey. The other two parts are outcome measures aimed at measuring stress and burnout levels. All three parts are taken at one time, and each part should take no more than five (5) minutes for a total of fifteen (15) minutes to complete the surveys. You will be able to save your answers and return to the survey if you need.

This study is open to all physical therapists who have had a student within the past 12 months and those who were full-time employees during the student’s clinical experience. You must have had a primary grading responsibility for a student physical therapist within the past 12 months.

Your consent for participation in this research will be assumed upon clicking on and completing the survey below. There are no direct benefits to you for completing the survey. Potential risks of this study include loss of time, emotional or psychological distress, and loss of confidentiality. Confidentiality will be protected to the extent that is allowed by law. All data will be stored electronically using an encrypted transcription and data analysis software application. The data will only be retrievable with the project’s unique username and password. Only the Primary Investigator and research committee will have access to the data.

The researchers will try to prevent any problem that could happen because of this research. You should let the researchers know at once if there is a problem, and they will help you. However, Texas Woman's University does not provide medical services or financial assistance for injuries that might happen because you are taking part in this research. If services are needed, you may contact the primary investigator who can provide you with resources.

If you would like additional information on this Institutional Review Board-approved study or have any questions regarding the study, you may email the primary investigator: rpontiff@twu.edu.

Thank you for your consideration.
