Dear Fieldwork Educator,
We would like to invite you to participate in a study that investigates the barriers and facilitators to the inclusion of students with disabilities in health and human service professional programs. In particular, we are interested in the accommodations of fieldwork settings in ten health and human service programs (Audiology, Speech-Language Pathology, Dental Hygiene, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing (including Licensed Practical Nurses, Registered Nurses and Psychiatric Nurses), Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Psychology (including counselling, psychotherapy and psychoeducation), and Social Work). Our research project is entitled, “Strategies for increasing accessibility and equity in health and human service educational programs: national perspectives.”
Who is eligible to participate?
• Current fieldwork educators who have supervised at least one student within the last 5 years
• From one of the ten health and human services programs we are targeting
