Imaging Appropriateness Research Team Needs Your Help

Posted: May 11, 2017 

Attached below is a link to an anonymous web-based survey relating to imaging decision making by physical therapists. Please take the time to complete the survey, which includes multiple case scenarios, targeted for outpatient clinicians who treat patients with musculoskeletal disorders.  If you practice in this setting, your participation is very important.  Therefore, your response is critical in helping the researchers achieve sufficient participation.  Instructions to complete the survey appear upon opening the survey link.  Because we allow only one participant per IP address, we ask that you not open the survey until you are ready to complete it in totality.
