A Survey of Incivility in the Occupational Therapy Workplace

You are invited to participate in an anonymous survey about your last six months of employment as an OT practitioner. The survey explores workplace culture (civility, incivility and resilience). It is being conducted by occupational therapy graduate students at San José State University. We think attaining the aforementioned information will be valuable to our profession. The survey takes ~5-minutes. All responses are so appreciated!

The following link will allow you to access the survey: https://sjsu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3sonH01KyQM8LuB

If you have any questions about this survey, or experience difficulty accessing or completing it, please contact our faculty advisor, Deborah Bolding at [email protected].

Thank you for all that you do, and we hope to receive your important feedback.

Sincerely,
Kate Poisson OTS, Cameron McCallister OTS, David M. Pufki OTS, Angelica Ramirez OTS, Claire Rickly OTS, Victoria Scattini OTS, & Deborah Bolding PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA
