University of WA Survey of Acupuncturists during the COVID-19 Pandemic
- For those of you practicing as acupuncturists, check out this IRB-approved survey from a colleague who is doing this research through the University of Washington. Looks like she is collecting data on how the pandemic is affecting practice, from direct clinical care to pivots in online resources including the use of telehealth: https://redcap.iths.org/surveys/?s=7FTTYN73X9&
- suspension date: the survey closes June 8th, 2020
- More info:
- The survey is intended for ALL licensed acupuncturists. You don't need to have a telehealth service in place to respond to the survey. One of the aims of this survey is to set the stage for larger survey studies of profession-wide effects similar to the benchmark studies in other healthcare professions.
- The estimated time to complete the survey is 5 minutes.
- Principal Investigator: Tamsin Lee, DAOM
- At a time when I hear disagreement in the definition of "telehealth", I offer this very useful definition they published, which dispels all previous confusing terminology I have heard in the medical field the last year or so:
"The term 'telehealth' refers to the entire spectrum of activities used to deliver care at a distance--without direct physical contact with the patient. Telehealth encompasses both provider-to-patient and provider-to-provider communications and can take place synchronously (telephone and video), asynchronously (patient portal messages, e-consults), and through virtual agents (chatbots) and wearable devices."
