Survey for Speech-Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Nurses in the Nordic countries

The purpose of this survey is twofold: we aim to 1) collect general information regarding the qualifications and clinical competencies accomplished for each professional through their education
and work experience and 2) investigate the services provided by SLTs, OTs and Nurses who have been working with adults with oropharyngeal dysphagia (swallowing disorders) within the past 12 months.

All practicing Speech-Language Therapists (SLTs), Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Nurses living in the Nordic countries are invited to complete this survey.

To simplify and secure optimal data collection there are two survey options. For more information about the research project and participation, please choose the survey option below that is appropriate for you.
