Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

OTPs in four countries completed an online survey related to their perceptions, practices, and decision-making processes when using evidence to inform sensory-based interventions. This study examined OTPs’ awareness of sensory-based literature, knowledge base of existing evidence, and how evidence-based practice intervention skills were obtained. This session will discuss survey outcomes and the implications for future practice, as well as provide a current list of sensory-based evidence for participants.
