To whom it may concern,
We are final year Speech and Language Therapy students at University College Cork and are investigating people’s perspectives on a café appropriate for people with aphasia.
The purpose of this study is to gain insight into the perspectives of Speech and Language Therapists in relation to a communication supported café for people with aphasia: ‘Aphasia Café’. As Speech and Language Therapists who work with adults with acquired communication difficulties in Ireland, you are invited to complete this short survey which will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Participation is voluntary. You can choose not to complete this survey.
No identifying details are required and therefore your responses are completely anonymous and you will not be able to be identified.
As the survey is anonymous it will not be possible to identify participants and therefore unable to remove completed surveys once submitted.
The survey data will be stored securely on a password protected computer. It will only be accessible to the research team and will be held for a minimum of 10 years in line with UCC Code of Research Conduct.
The survey will be analysed as part of a final year project which will be undertaken by final year Speech and Language Therapy students, Eimear Meaney and Ciara O’Callaghan, and is supervised by Dr Helen Kelly. We may disseminate the findings at conferences or write up for publication in academic journals.
