Title: Library Outreach to Occupational Therapy Fieldwork Educators
Objective: The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of a library outreach program to occupational therapy fieldwork educators in the form of an online evidence-based practice (EBP) research tutorial.
Methods: This study explores, via questionnaire, the research needs of and the resources available to occupational therapy fieldwork educators, as well as their perceived comfort level with EBP and the translation to clinical application. An online tutorial will be developed based on the input from the needs analysis and current EBP resources. This study will also examine data collected from a pre/posttest assessment administered to occupational therapy fieldwork educators in conjunction with the online tutorial to establish whether this type of library outreach program is an effective way to provide EBP instruction to occupational therapy fieldwork educators.
Results: It is anticipated that this type of outreach will be helpful to occupational therapy fieldwork educators who may feel that their fieldwork students are more versed in retrieving and incorporating research into daily practice.
Conclusions: Results will be discussed.
