  • Analyze who is downloading the manual and for what purposes
  • Acquire feedback from those who have downloaded the manual or are trying to use the RTSS
  • Facilitate communication between those who have downloaded the manual or are attempting to use the RTSS for similar purposes (e.g., clinical, educational, and/or research uses)
  • Synthesize RTSS user feedback to suggest the development of tools to enhance application of the RTSS

  1. Analyze who is downloading the manual and for what purpose.  

Current Results: 

  • 1220 rehabilitation professionals have downloaded the manual since 9/2023
  • Multiple disciplines have shown interest for multiple reasons: 
    • Disciplines: 
      • SLP = 422
      • OT = 249
      • PT = 229 
      • Physician = 152
      • Psychology = 138
      • Other (Rec, RN, Researchers) = 30
    • Primary reason for download: 
      • Clinical Care = 357
      • Research = 223
      • Education = 283
      • Explore = 357
  1. Further analyze facilitators and barriers to implementation within a group of professionals who have attempted to incorporate the RTSS into their work / “super users” using the Theoretical Domains Framework.
