Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This descriptive study examined the experience of OT and PT clinicians involved in research. Needs, supports, and barriers were identified for involvement in research. Strategies were discovered to enhance the development of clinical researchers. This new knowledge can foster the preparation of more OT clinician researchers, ensuring achievement of Vision 2025, enhancing effective solutions for participation in everyday life by creating evidence for practice, and improving outcomes.
