Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Sarah Rowland and I am currently completing a part-time M.Sc. in Clinical Speech and Language Studies (Dysphagia Strand) in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, under the supervision of Professor Margaret Walshe. My research project is investigating “Perspectives on the Role of Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs) Working in Critical Care: An International Survey”. This study has received ethical approval from the School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences, Trinity College Dublin.

This research project requires SLT/SLPs to complete an anonymous, online survey which explores their everyday practice of working in critical/intensive care settings nationally and internationally. It looks at the extent of specialist competence and service provision to discover similarities and differences in SLTs/SLPs practice patterns in different countries. Consequently, it is anticipated that this study will determine if there is a need for further training and practice guidelines to be developed for clinicians in this area.

The survey is available online here.

Yours faithfully,

Sarah Rowland: [email protected]
