Survey for Speech-Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Nurses in the Nordic countries
All practicing Speech-Language Therapists (SLTs), Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Nurses living in the Nordic countries are invited to complete this survey. This survey is in English so that questions and answers use the same terminology for all participants, thus providing greater precision for analysis, interpretation and presentation of the data.
The purpose of this survey is twofold: we aim to 1) collect general information regarding the qualifications and clinical competencies accomplished for each professional through their education and work experience and 2) investigate the services provided by SLTs, OTs and Nurses who have been working with adults with oropharyngeal dysphagia (swallowing disorders) within the past 12 months.
This survey study is approved by the Norwegian Data Protection Services (ref. 616573) and should not take more than 30 minutes to complete. To access the best format for ease of reading it is recommended to complete the survey in its entirety on a personal computer.
To simplify and secure optimal data collection there are two survey options. For more information about the research project and participation, please choose the survey option below that is appropriate for you.
Survey 1: I HAVE NOT worked with adults with swallowing disorders within the past 12 months. Connect to Survey 1 here.
Survey 2: I HAVE worked with adults with swallowing disorders within the past 12 months. Connect to Survey 2 here.
