Survey open to BAS members
Linguistic Underpinnings of Narrative in Aphasia (LUNA): A proof-of-concept study of a novel discourse treatment for aphasia using personal narratives
A UK speech and language therapist survey of discourse analysis in aphasia (LUNA Phase 2)
We are delighted to announce that The Stroke Association has funded this research project.
Please find below a weblink for the survey. The link takes you to the Participant Information Sheet (which is online) and the Consent Form (which must be completed online), and the survey.
The survey is Phase 2 of LUNA and was approved by the City, University of London Language and Communication Science Proportionate Review Ethics Committee on 07/08/2018.https://cityunilondon.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6FDdw93o9pGhP6Z
The survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.
It has 49 questions (14 demographic, 35 discourse, almost all “tick box”; and an additional 3 screening questions and 2 final optional questions).
The questions are about whether therapists do or don’t carry out discourse analysis, what helps and hinders, and what their general views are about it and its feasibility in the clinical setting. In order to participate, speech therapists need to be qualified, currently practising in the UK, and working in rehabilitation with patients/ clients with aphasia.
The survey is open from 10th August until 15th November.
