Dear Colleagues,

My name is René Thomas. I am a Doctor of Health Science student at the University of Indianapolis. I am inviting you to participate in a study that I am conducting as part of my Doctoral degree. The title of my study is Physical Therapist Faculty Perceptions of High Fidelity Simulation.

High fidelity simulation (HFS) and other simulation based learning experiences (SBLE) have been documented as an effective teaching tool for medical, nursing and physical therapy students. Despite this, only 40-50% of Commission on the Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) accredited physical therapy programs incorporate immersive experiences such as SBLE including HFS into the curriculum. Therefore, the purpose of this qualitative study is to explore physical therapy faculty members’ perceptions of high fidelity simulation within the Doctor of Physical Therapy curriculum.

If you decide to participate, you will be asked to meet with me in person or virtually at a mutually agreed upon time and location for an interview lasting approximately 45-60 minutes. Participation is confidential and completely voluntary. Below are the inclusion criteria to participate in this study:

● Full-time DPT faculty members teaching acute care and/or cardiopulmonary content at U.S. institutions of higher education in physical therapy programs accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE)

● Full-time DPT faculty members as above who have not previously used HFS in their course work

If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact me at 317-698-8733 or by email at [email protected] I look forward to speaking with you and thank you in advance for your assistance in this project.

Sincerely,

 

René Thomas, PT, DPT, CLT-LANA
