Hi I have bought the Implementing Ayres Sensory Itegration - A Clinicians Guide for the ASI Masters in Sensory Integration through Ulster University. Unfortunatly I have lost the USB key that came with the book - is there any way of getting a replacment - the book is so good and have become my bible for the SI course. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Hello Colleagues, I am conducting an interview in order to gain an in-depth understanding of occupational therapy practitioners’ perceptions and practice of addressing social isolation risk factors among community-dwelling older adults in skilled nursing facilities prior to discharge. This study is looking for occupational therapy practitioners who work at least twenty hours per week in a skilled nursing facility. This study is completely voluntary, confidential, and no form of compensation is provided. The interview will take approximately 1 hour to complete and may be in-person, on the phone, or through online communication platforms such as Skype or Facetime. This project has been approved by Quinnipiac University’s Institutional Review Board. If you have questions or would like further information, please contact the co-investigator, Allissa Smith, who can be contacted via email at [email protected]. Thank you!
