Speech Pathol­ogy Master’s Stu­dents Needed for Rat­ing Videos for Research Study

This study is ONLY for stu­dents who will be enter­ing their SECOND YEAR of their Master’s Pro­gram in Autumn Quarter

Pur­pose:  Researchers at the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton are con­duct­ing a study. We are devel­op­ing a pro­gram to train med­ical stu­dents and allied health stu­dents how to com­mu­ni­cate effec­tively with patients with com­mu­ni­ca­tion dis­or­ders. We are seek­ing speech-language pathol­ogy grad­u­ate stu­dents who would be will­ing to watch videos of med­ical / allied health stu­dents who have par­tic­i­pated in our train­ing pro­gram. These stu­dents will be con­duct­ing sim­u­lated inter­views with stan­dard­ized patients por­tray­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion dis­or­ders. We would ask you to rate the stu­dents’ com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills using a rat­ing form. Data from this study will be used to eval­u­ate learn­ing out­comes from the train­ing, and will be used to mod­ify the train­ing in the future.

Inclu­sion criteria:

  • Enrolled in Mas­ter of Sci­ence pro­gram in Speech-Language Pathol­ogy at the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton (either core or med­ical SLP pro­gram ok)
  • Have your own com­puter and inter­net access where you can view the videos on a secure web­site and com­plete the eval­u­a­tion forms online.

What you would be asked to do:

    • Attend train­ing ses­sions. We pre­dict two group train­ing ses­sions of about 2-hours in length (snacks pro­vided). Once we have our stu­dent vol­un­teers we will try to sched­ule the train­ing at a time that does not con­flict with courses. We plan to start early Autumn quarter.
    • Rate videos of med­ical and allied health stu­dents con­duct­ing sim­u­lated med­ical inter­views with stan­dard­ized patients por­tray­ing apha­sia or dysarthria asso­ci­ated with Parkinson’s dis­ease. This can be done on flex­i­ble time at flex­i­ble loca­tions with your own com­puter / internet
    • You will be asked to rate 12–15 videos. Rat­ing requires up to 2.5 hours.  If you would like to com­plete addi­tional video sets you may do so.

Addi­tional information:

    • You will be paid $50 for com­plet­ing the research task (one set of 12–15 videos). If you com­plete addi­tional video sets, you will be paid an addi­tional $50 for each video set com­pleted (each set con­tains 12–15 videos).
    • Par­tic­i­pa­tion in this study is vol­un­tary. You may stop at any time.
    • Par­tic­i­pa­tion in this study is not related to any employ­ment, aca­d­e­mic, or med­ical care rela­tion­ships you may have with the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton. Your aca­d­e­mic stand­ing in the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton Speech Pathol­ogy pro­gram will not be affected by your deci­sion about par­tic­i­pat­ing in this study.

Con­tact information:
