Dr. Travers invites you to participate now in a survey about technology use in occupational therapy practice.
OT Use of Tablets Survey
Dr. Travers of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Kinesiology, Occupational Therapy Program is conducting a survey to better understand the use of tablets (iPads, Android tablets, Kindle Fire) in clinical practice by occupational therapy professionals with an associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or doctoral degree. This survey takes approximately 10 minutes. By participating in this confidential survey, you will be providing valuable information that could lead to a better understanding of how, when, and why tablets are being used with clients.

We would greatly appreciate if you shared this survey with your colleagues and other occupational therapists. If you have any questions related to the survey, please contact Dr. Brittany Travers at email@example.com or 608-263-0282.
