Aged care nurses: perceptions of handrail use


Nicole Swan writes: As an Occupational Therapy Honours student at Deakin University (Geelong, Victoria), I am seeking to explore the perceptions of staff who work in aged care facilities on the value and use of handrails in corridors.

To participate in the survey, please click here.

The survey is anonymous and involves completing one online survey which is expected to take about 10 minutes to complete.

Results from this study will help contribute to the improved design of aged care facilities, direct future practice in this field and promote independence and safety of users in aged care.

If you would like to participate in the survey, please click here.

All participants are invited to forward the online survey to others, to contribute to the study.

Your support of this project would be greatly appreciated.
