I am a student in the Doctor of Science in Rehabilitation and Health Leadership program at Queen’s University, and my research is focused on developing online life skills training modules for therapy assistant students.
Emerging evidence suggests that supporting students in learning life skills helps them to be more successful in college. None of this research has been done with therapy assistant students, who may not feel confident in life skills themselves, but have the added challenge of working on life skills with clients.
Your perspective as a graduate of a therapy assistant program can help with designing life skills training modules that meet the needs of therapy assistant students. You are invited to participate in a research study entitled: Life Skills Training for Therapy Assistant Students: An Exploratory Sequential Mixed Methods Study.
During a 45-minute to one hour focus group, we will be asking you to share your ideas related to life skills for therapy assistant students in their first year of college. Focus groups will be conducted online through Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.
If you are a graduate of a 2-year therapy assistant diploma program and are interested in being part of this exciting research, please click here for a short screening survey: https://queensu.qualtrics.com/
Your contributions are valuable to help expand knowledge in this area and contribute to therapy assistant student success.
