We are occupational therapy (OT) students from Midwestern University and are looking for help to increase participation in our research survey that aims to gain insight from client’s who have experienced stroke. If you could please help us by passing the following message and link to our survey, we would greatly appreciate it. If you have experienced a stroke and received occupational therapy services as a result, please help us by taking the attached survey. If you know someone who has experienced a stroke and may have received occupational therapy services as a result, please feel free to pass on the survey to them. Thank you so much for your help! If you chose to pass along our survey, please include the following message as it is approved and required by the Institutional Review Board of Midwestern University.

Hello! If you are a person who experienced a stroke and received occupational therapy services, we are very interested in hearing about your experiences.

We are second year occupational therapy students and faculty from Midwestern University conducting a research study and would like to ask for your assistance. The purpose of our study is to gain insight from practitioners and clients on how well occupational therapy practitioners in neurorehabilitation settings are addressing the psychosocial needs of clients post-stroke.
If you received occupational therapy services following a stroke, please complete a brief survey about your stroke, your mental health needs, and your experiences in rehabilitation. The survey should take no longer than 10-15 minutes to complete. You may follow this link in order to access the survey:

After you complete the survey, please consider passing the link or this email along to other people who have had a stroke and may have received occupational therapy services.

We appreciate your assistance and look forward to your responses. If you have any additional questions or would like to receive the results of this study upon its completion, you can contact the Principal Investigator of this study, Dr. Emily K. Simpson, Associate Professor in the Occupational Therapy Program, for information.
