Therapist Survey - workforce retention issues

 

Overview

This project is part of the Wobbly Hub and Double Spokes (WH&DS) project.

Aim: The aim of the therapist survey was to explore retention of therapists working with people with a disability in western NSW.

Approach: The survey was designed to understand disability therapy workforce retention issues and preferences in western NSW. The survey was based on data collected from focus groups and interviews with service providers.

Outcomes: The online survey was completed by 226 therapists with 199 responses being included in the final analysis (those not included either did not meet the inclusion criteria, opted out, or had incomplete information). Some findings of the survey include:

A presentation of the key finding of the survey was put together and shared in real time with participants using Adobe Connect. This presentation was followed by a question and answer session. For those who could not attend online at the time of the presentation, it was made available on Vimeo.
