    Since the COVID-19 pandemic started, our efforts have intensified, we have provided guidance for clinicians in multiple formats, we continue to advocate for better reimbursement, and we have teamed up with great collaborators to complete a series of research studies that will help us continue to build clinically translatable research evidence for this service delivery model.

    Part of this effort involves hearing from you, your experiences, and needs. Therefore, today I am writing to kindly request your participation in a web-based survey study that we have collaboratively developed with collaborators at Purdue University and Dr. Michelle Troche's group at Teachers College, Columbia University. This study is partially supported by the Purdue College of Health and Human Sciences.

    This survey aims to help us document (beyond what we know already) the experiences, perceived benefits, and burdens/obstacles of speech-language pathologists providing dysphagia services for adults via telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even if you only provided such services for a short period of time or even if you did not provide such services (but treat adult patients), your perspective will still be valuable and will help us in our research and advocacy efforts. Also, clinicians from all countries are highly encouraged to participate. For those of you who treat children with dysphagia, please stay tuned, as a similar survey will be coming out soon.

    This survey needs to be completed in ONE SITTING and takes approximately 15-20 MINUTES to complete. 

    Participants will be eligible to enter their email in an optional separate raffle drawing link at the end of the survey. Two participants will be randomly selected to receive an Amazon gift card for $50 each. Drawings will be done once data collection has been completed. This survey has been reviewed by the Purdue University Institutional Review Board (IRB) and was determined to be exempt from further IRB review. All responses are anonymous.

    Here is the link to the survey:

    The survey will remain open until Monday, February 18th.

To support and empower members to provide the highest quality, life changing communication, swallowing and hearing services to the people of the State of Indiana.
